The fourth Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience Summer School will take place in Beijing, China from July 6 to July 24, 2013. The summer school is co-organized by Xiao-Jing Wang (NYU), Si Wu (Beijing Normal), Zach Mainen (CNP) and Upi Bhalla (NCBS) and sponsored by Beijing Normal University, NYU Shanghai, Hugo Shong and the McGovern Institute, Peking University, Tsinghua University and Cold Spring Harbor Asia.
CSNE members Drs. Raj Rao and Adrienne Fairhall will teach "Computational Neuroscience" through a 10-week class using Coursera. The class will introduce concepts about how computational methods are used to understand the function of the nervous system. For more information about the class (e.g., syllabus, course format, recommended reading) and online registration, visit https://www.coursera.org/#course/compneuro.
Starting in April, 2012, CSNE members Dr. Rajesh Rao and Dr. Adrienne Fairhall will teach an online course titled "Computational Neuroscience."
Course Abstract: Understanding how the brain works is one of the fundamental challenges in science today. This course will introduce you to basic computational techniques for analyzing, modeling, and understanding the behavior of cells and circuits in the brain. You do not need to have any prior background in neuroscience to take this course.
