MATH 8515 - Dynamical Foundations of Neuroscience

3 Credit Hours
Prerequisites: Math 4010/MATH 6010 , Math 4275/MATH 6275 , or Phys 4180/6180 with grade of C or higher.
(Same as NEUR 8340 .) This course deals with computational and mathematical neuroscience with the emphasis on models of neurons and neural networks described in terms of dynamical systems, time continuous and discrete. Topics include biophysics and dynamics of single and coupled neurons, bifurcations and transitions between various types of neuronal activities; modeling of synapses, dendrites and axons; locomotion and small networks; neural coding in single cells and at the population level; dynamics of large networks, including spike computing with population codes; networks learning and behavioral changes.
