In the Fall 2014, I will teach the Neurophysics course on graduate and
This course will cover theoretical findings and experimental approaches
provided by physics.
The overlap between physics and neuroscience is a growing area of
interdisciplinary quantitative research in neuroscience.
During the course you will learn to write your own programs inMatlab and
to conduct bifurcation analysis of neuronal dynamics using program
Please, take a look at the flyer attached.
Next week we will have Informational Session for Neurophysics where I will
present the course and answer questions. The session will be held at
