Theoretical Courses

From Neuron to Brain

One aim of this short introductory course is to show people interested primarily in higher functions of the brain how interesting and  important it is to know about channels, transmitters and electrical signals.

Introduction to Systems and Computational Neuroscience: Evolution of Neural Computation

The course delineates the evolution of the vertebrate nervous systems, with a particular focus on mammals and among them on the human lineage.

Introduction to Systems and Computational Neuroscience: Tactile Perception

This course focuses on the basic principles of organization of the sensory pathways and their target regions of cerebral cortex.

Introduction to Systems and Computational Neuroscience: Visual Perception

The course focuses on the structure and functions of the mammalian visual systems, with a special emphasis on shape processing and object recognition.

Language, Reading and the Brain

This course offers an introduction to how the brain deals with language and reading by focusing on the relationship between form and meaning, notably described by linguistic morphology.
