Frankfurt Computational Modelling Block course

Compartmental Modeling of Biophysically and Anatomically Realistic Neurons

This research block provides opportunity to participate in a real research project; Topics: modeling neurons (from the hippocampus/cortex) at different levels, ranging from neurons with simplified morphology to neurons with full morphology; modeling synaptic plasticity in these neurons; learning techniques for building, managing, and using models that are closely linked to experimental data, especially those that involve hippocampal cells with complex anatomical and biophysical properties; coupling of compartmental modeling to morphological modeling (TREES toolbox)
