EITN Spring School


EITN Spring School
Mon, 19. March 2018 - Fri, 23. March 2018


The EITN - European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience - Spring Scholl 2018 will take place in Paris on March 19-23.

The main focus of the course will be to understand and design neural models at multiple scales, ranging from cellular and circuit models to large-scale brain networks.

The goal of the course is to teach different techniques of computational neuroscience spanning different scales:

Day 1: Single-neuron models (Idan Segev, HUJI)
Day 2: Mean-field models (Alain Destexhe, CNRS UNIC EITN) 
Day 3: Model comparison and validation (Sonja Grün, FZ Jülich and Gaute Einevoll, NMBU) 
Day 4: From local circuits to whole-brain models (Markus Diesmann, FZ Jülich and Viktor Jirsa, AMU) 
Day 5: Resting state and sensory processing (Gustavo Deco, UPF)

The students will be asked to form 5 interdisciplinary working groups on each one of these themes, and will do a short modeling project using one of the simulation packages presented at the course (Python, NEST, Brian, The Virtual Brain...) Tutorials and use cases will be provided to teach students how to use these packages.
