Course CSE511
Title Brain and Memory Modeling
Description

An introduction to brain modeling. Neuroscience topics include major brain structures, constituent glia and neurons, and synapses connecting nuerons, how excited neurons send iconic firing spikes to other neurons; synapse changes during learning and forgetting; connection structures for stable ionic activity in neural networks; and distributed firing patterns underlying memory, perception, and thought. Computing topics include efficient methods for modeling electrical activity in single neurons using NEURON and in networks of millions of neurons using discrete event simulation. Participants will code simulations OR use neuroscience experience to refine brain models.
