Computational Neuroeconomics and Neuroscience
Time and location
|Wed, 15:00-16:30||Room: BLU-E-003|
This seminar covers a broad variety of mathematical and statistical methods used in contemporary computational neuroscience and neuroeconomics. This semester we will cover a textbook entitled Spikes, Decisions, and Actions (1999; Oxford University Press) by Hugh R. Wilson. A PDF of the book and accompanying MatLab scripts can be downloaded here(downloads at the bottom of the page). Each week a course participant will present one chapter of the book, which will be followed by general discussion. Most chapters contain more material than can be presented and discussed within 90 minutes, so presenters are encouraged to focus on a selection of ideas that can be presented in 45-60 minutes in order to allow for questions and discussion.
IMPORTANT: The chapters will be assigned during the first class on February 23rd.
If you wish to attend this course, please send an e-mail with your name, address, telephone number, and student ID number (Matrikelnummer) to Tamara Herz.
Please send your suggestions for the course schedule or any feedback to Lars Kasper.
