EITN Fall School in Computational Neuroscience 2023

Paris, 20-29 September 2023
The EITN Fall School in Computational Neuroscience consists of a 10-day course in theoretical and computational neuroscience, from cellular to whole-brain levels. The course is structured in thematic days with lectures, tutorials, and project work. The course is typically aimed at PhD students, young postdocs, or master students interested to learn more about techniques of computational neuroscience, and the use of various simulation environments for model building. The students will form thematic groups to work on predefined subjects, with the help of tutors. The course will cover cellular models, models of brain signals, circuit models and networks, mean-field models, and whole-brain models. There will be lectures and tutorials associated with these topics.

Sacha Van Albada (Julich), Albert Gidon (U Berlin), Hermann Cuntz (Ernst Strüngmann Institute, Frankfurt), Alain Destexhe (CNRS), Matteo di Volo (University Lyon 1), Spase Petkoski (Aix-Marseille Univ.), Gorka Zamora-Lopez (Universitat Pompeu Fabra)
