BME 4422 - The Biophysics of Neural Computation

Credits: 3

Prerequisites: MAP 4484 - Mathematical Modeling in Biology I  
Course Description:  

This course will discuss the biophysics of neuronal computation for both biological and artificial neural networks. It will provide a detailed introduction to: i) the anatomy/physiology of excitable cells, ii) the major brain architectures and principles, and iii) the most relevant mathematical models for neural computation from single neurons to circuits. Therefore, this course will prepare the students to understand the main principles by means of which our brains work and computers recognize patterns, learn/plan actions, and interact with humans
