UW Online Class: Computational Neuroscience

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • There is a free online class in Computational Neuroscience at UW that starts in April: https://www.coursera.org/course/compneuro

    This course provides an introduction to basic computational methods for understanding what nervous systems do and for determining how they function. We will explore the computational principles governing various aspects of vision, sensory-motor control, learning, and memory. Specific topics that will be covered include representation of information by spiking neurons, processing of information in neural networks, and algorithms for adaptation and learning. We will make use of Matlab demonstrations and exercises to gain a deeper understanding of concepts and methods introduced in the course. The course is primarily aimed at third- or fourth-year undergraduates and beginning graduate students, as well as professionals and distance learners interested in learning how the brain processes information.

    Coursera is an excellent source, I haven't had a class on there I found boring or not useful. I'd highly suggest it.

      I'm taking it as well but I'm worried I might fall behind the class schedule due to other commitments. Definitely plan on going through all the material though, and would love to have some discussion!
