NWG-Course: Analysis and Models in Neurophysiology


October 10-15, 2010
Application deadline: June 30, 2010
 
    
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.
http://www.bcf.uni-freiburg.de/events/conferences/101010-nwgcourse 
The course includes various topics such as
*	Neuron models and spike train statistics
*	Point processes and correlation measures
*	Systems and signals
*	Local field potentials and synaptic plasticity
*	 <http://find.bccn.uni-freiburg.de> FIND: New tools and developments
The course will consist of lectures in the morning and and matching
exercises using Matlab and Mathematica. 
Experience with these software packages will be helpful but is not required
for registration. 
The participants should have a basic understanding of scientific
programming. 
This course is designated especially for advanced diploma/master-students
