Summary

 

Computational Neuroscience - BE9-MCNS

Aims

    • To provide students with an introduction to Computational Neuroscience
    • To provide students with an appreciation of the role of computational and theoretical approaches to understanding the nervous system
    • To provide students with some practical skills, such as basics knowledge of MATLAB, of numerical tools to simulate

Role

Course Leader

Brain-machine Interfaces - BE9-MBMI

Aims

This course introduces a technology that is no longer the domain of science fiction, but has become science and is partially used already in clinical settings: the interfacing of the human brain to electronic circuitry. The course will emphasize currently developed and used technologies such as brain-machine interfaces (e.g. for the restoration of movement and communication capabilities of paralyzed patients) and deep-brain stimulation (such as for treatment of Parkinson`s disease).
