  • Room: MPI MiS, A 01
  • First class: Nov. 21, 2014
  • Language: English
  • Target audience: MSc students, PhD students, Postdocs
  • Content (Keywords):  Information theory, dynamical systems, neural coding, neural populations, synchronization

Abstract:

In this course, I shall describe the conceptual structure of neuroscience and analyze it mathematically. On the way, a number of mathematical concepts and tools will be introduced and developed. Therefore, the course will be also of interest for students seeking an overview of mathematical methods.

Abstract

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.
