Current Topics in Computational Neuroscience
In this seminar recent computational neuroscience papers will be presented and discussed. The goal is to dive deeper into topics beyond what can be covered in a lecture and also to give an insight in recent research topics in our lab. To name some of the topics: Predictive models, BMI, CNN vs. human, neuronal morphologies. Below there is a list of papers of which you can choose a paper to present.
Recommended previous knowledge
- B.Inf.1236 Machine Learning (the seminar can accompany lecture in the same term)
- B.Inf.1237 Deep Learning
- B.Phy.5605.Mp: Computational Neuroscience: Basics
- Oral presentation (approx. 30 min.) and term paper (max. 5000 words)
- Examination requirements
- Knowledge in a specific field of neuroscience
- Ability to present the acquired knowledge in a both orally and in a written report
There will be a starting session where the topics are presented. In the following week we give you an introduction in how to present and give feedback. In the next weeks, in each weekly session, one paper will be presented (25 minutes) and subsequently discussed (~15 minutes) and the other slot will be a trial presentation of the presenter of the following week.
Our plan is to hold this seminar in presence in room Informatik-Provisorium - 0.102 on Mondays 10:00 - 12:00.
