Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course illuminates the role of modeling and simulation in neuroscience from a number of perspectives. Current scientific articles are reviewed by the participants and the role of the model, how it is used, how it is developed, etc is considered. The students present and discuss the articles from a number of perspectives that highlights the role of the model in neuroscience. The questions concern the objective of the model in terms of knowledge, the quality of the modeling work, the scientific contribution of the model etc.
