Summer School in Computational and Theoretical Models in Neuroscience – Venice 09-14 September 2019

Approaches and techniques from Physics, Mathematics and Computational Science are increasingly becoming critical for understanding and modelling the brain, and also for designing and interpreting experiments. Modeling is an essential tool to cut through the vast complexity of neurobiological systems and their many interacting elements. 

 ConTaMiNEURO 2019 wants to convey central ideas, methods, and practices of modern computational neuroscience through a combination of lectures, tutorials, and seminars. During the course’s mornings, distinguished international faculty deliver lectures and seminars on selected topics in computational neuroscience (see below). For the remainder of the time, students work on research projects in teams of 3-4 people under close supervision of expert tutors and faculty. Research projects will include data analyses and the development of theories to explain experimental observations.
