The course gives an introduction to the main subdisciplines of neuroscience, including neuroinformatics.
Following the course the student should be able to:
- describe the micro- and macrostructure of the nervous system
- describe the whole chain of structures and their functions, from single ion channels in the cell membranes to sensory, motor and cognitive functions
- summate the scientific bases for how to achieve knowledge about the different parts of the nervous system
- evaluate and describe the content in scientific articles within the fields of neuroscience and neuroinformatics.
The course comprises lectures and practical exercises.
This is a second cycle course. So you should fulfil general eligibility to attend second cycle course. Additionally, PHD students registered at KTH/KI/SU can also take the course.
Since this is an introductory course, no prior knowledge of neuroscience or biology is required. Some of lectures cover mathematical models of neurons and networks -- to follow that it would help you are familiar with basic Calculus and Ordinary Differential Equations.
KTH main campus and Karolinska Institutet Campus Solna, Stockholm.
