BCSC 257: Advanced Computational Neuroscience

Cross-listed: BCSC 557, CSC 243, CSC 443, NSCI 257
Prerequisites: BCSC 247 or permission of instructor
Offered: Spring

This is a seminar-style course for advanced undergraduate and graduate students covering multiple areas of computational neuroscience by weekly readings and student presentations. Many of the topics are deeper explorations of topics covered in BCSC 247 Introduction to Computational Neuroscience, focusing on the sensory system, decision-making, action selection and active inference, especially from a probabilistic and normative perspective. The reading list is somewhat flexible and adaptable to student interest. There is an opportunity for a final project but this is not required.
