In this course, I shall discuss various dynamical systems in neurobiology, from the dynamics of individual neurons to activity patterns of populations. Both deterministic and stochastic phenomena will be treated. This course can therefore also serve as an introduction to the mathematical theory of dynamical systems, because  I shall use the examples to explain general concepts and results from the theory of dynamical systems or, in the terminology of physicists, nonlinear dynamics.
