Cellular, Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience
Program Directors: David W. Tank and Michael Berry, Princeton University Laboratory Directory: Alan Gelperin, Princeton University Program Dates: June 9, 2019 – July 5, 2019 Application and detailed course description at C3N.princeton.edu
This intensive new program will introduce students with quantitative training in the physical sciences, mathematics, engineering, or computer science to the concepts and research methodologies of modern neuroscience. Topics covered will range from cellular biophysics to systems neuroscience, including core methods of electrophysiology as well as imaging methods for the study of single neurons, networks of neurons, and human brain dynamics during execution of behavioral computations. The program is unique in its focus on neural dynamics at several scales of complexity – cells, circuits, intact brains – and the combination of didactic lectures and laboratory exercises, including cellular biophysics, synaptic interactions and plasticity in neuronal networks, and fMRI imaging of targeted brain regions in human subjects. The capstone of this program will be one-week student-designed research projects integrating concepts and methodologies encountered during the initial formal lectures and laboratory exercises. Program work will include morning lectures and tutorials and laboratory exercises selected to complement and extend the themes presented in morning lectures.
