Overview

This course, supported by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, targets students with training in the physical sciences, mathematics or engineering who seek an introduction to the concepts and research methodologies of modern neuroscience. No previous training in biology is required. Topics covered will range from cellular biophysics to systems neuroscience, including particularly imaging methods for the study of single neurons, networks of neurons and human brain dynamics during execution of behavioral computations. The course will be unique in its focus on neural dynamics at several scales of complexity
