NEURO 496 - Computational Neuroscience

★ 3 (fi 6)(SECOND, 0-3L-0)

Faculty of Science

An interdisciplinary course designed to introduce students in biological science programs (Biology, Neuroscience, Kinesiology, Physiology and Psychology) to computational neuroscience. Students will learn the basic methods of computer programming and how computer simulations can be used to further our understanding of neurons, neuronal networks, processing of sensory information, and control of movements. The lectures are complemented by laboratory exercises that will allow students to develop programming skills and to construct computer simulations of neurophysiological processes. Prerequisites: PMCOL 371 or PHYSL 372 or KIN 302 or ZOOL 342 or permission of instructor.
