2018 spring BiS525 Brain Dynamics

 

Synopsis

This course is intended for graduate students in the Bio and Brain Engineering department with an interest and some background knowledge in Neuroscience. Brain dynamics is a field to aims at understanding fundamental principles underlying the information processing of the brain in mathematical and physical formalism and computational tools. This class provides the students with basics of brain dynamics. First, it introduces network structures of the brain (e.g., complex network and connectome). Then, we study dynamical properties of the brain including oscillation, synchronization, complexity, bifurcation, fractal, bursts and cortical variability, and synaptic plasticity etc. Their functional role in the brain will be discussed in the class as well.
