Cottbus-Senftenberg Theoretical Neuroscience Running lecture

Einführung in Computational Neuroscience

The lecture demonstrates the methods for analysis and modelling of neurons, neuronal systems, and behavior. Keywords: Spiking neurons, resting membrane potential, ion channels, action potential, Hodgkin-Huxley model, phase plane analysis, leaky integrate-and-fire model, synaptic transmission, synaptic plasticity. Neural networks: perceptron, Hebb's learning rule, Hopfield networks. Analysis of spike trains (reverse correlation) and firing rate (regression and system identification). Optimal estimation: minimum variance, maximum likelihood, maximum a-posteriori, mechanisms of sensory fusion. Modelling of sensorimotor systems.
