BIOL 343 - Computational Neuroscience

Prerequisite, consent of instructor. Computational bioscience is an interdisciplinary field of biology, combined with computer science, and mathematics. Computational neuroscience is an important and rising field of computational bioscience. This course will provide the principles of computational neuroscience as they apply to bioscience. This course will also teach core concepts and fundamentals of computational bioscience, and advances in the field in order to gain insight into significant bioscience questions. We will examine how scientific investigations involve experiment as well as computing in biology, biochemistry, neuroscience, and medicine. The student will learn how to use neuronal simulators such as GENESIS and XPP to build a computer model and perform simulations using experimental data. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
