BCF/NWG-Course: Analysis and Models in Neurophysiology


Application deadline: July 14, 2014




Aim of the course

The course is intended to provide advanced Diploma/Masters and PhD students, as well as young researchers from the neurosciences with approaches for the analysis of electrophysiological data and the theoretical concepts behind them.

The course includes various topics such as

  • Neuron models and point processes
  • Local field potentials
  • Neural coding
  • Neural decoding

The course will consist of lectures in the morning and and matching exercises using Matlab, Mathematica and Python in the afternoon.
Experience with these software packages will be helpful but is not required for registration. The participants should have a basic understanding of neural systems and scientific programming.
This course is designated especially for advanced diploma/master-students and PhD-students (preferentially in their first year).
