The winter school entitled “Computational Neuroscience by the Mediterranean” will serve as an intensive course introducing advanced undergraduate and graduate students to the basics of computational neuroscience and theoretical modelling of the brain and its functioning.

The school will last 4 days, and is planned to include one morning lecture and an afternoon tutorial, which will provide students with an in-depth understanding of the topics, and hands on experience with computational modeling.

In parallel, the students will be expected to work on a small project developed in collaboration with the lecturers and tutors. The projects will be presented on the 5th and last day of the winter school.

Over the course of the winter school, the invited lecturers will cover different levels of description and modeling of the brain. Details will be announced soon.

Through a selective registration process, the winter school aims to have 20 highly talented students. Interested students should register through a registration website that will be specified soon.

Morning lectures (10:00-12:00) are open to all. Afternoon tutorials (14:00-18:00) are reserved to registered students.

Readings will be provided on this website ahead of the school, in December.
