About the course
The course is mainly addressed to the Master and Doctorate programs. Students interested in acquiring a perspective in modern neuroscience and computational neuroscience research are welcomed. We will cover a selection of chapters from the book "Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain" by Mark Bear, Barry Connors and Michael A. Paradiso. Advanced discussions are expected to ensue after each chapter presentation. Depending on the number of participants each student will read 1 or 2 chapters and explain the chapter(s) to the others. Note that seminars will be recorded, if you have a problem with this let us know beforehand.
Topic focused seminar
The seminar will focus on a specific topic related to natural and/or artificial intelligence.
This semester we will discuss the anatomy and function of the brain at different levels of hierarchy. The discussion will be mainly based on the book "Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain" by Mark Bear, Barry Connors and Michael A. Paradiso.
This is a pass/fail course. During the course, you will collect points1. To pass you need to collect 70 out of 100 points:
- Presenting a chapter gives you 50 points multiplied by the score from the listener feedback (example: if listener feedback is 16 out of 20, then you get 50*0.8 = 40 points)
- Attending all seminars gives 20 points (~ 1.42 per seminar2)
- 30 points can be collected from the tests (answering all 4 questions correctly is worth ~2.1 points2)
1 Rescaling might occur.
2 Depends on the total number of seminars.
