Untitled Document
The course presents the contemporary computational perspective of the brain function using few or no equations. Therefore, it is accessible to people coming from both biological sciences and engineering sciences. To the biologist or a medical expert it presents brain function from a computational point of view in simple terms without equations. To the engineer (or someone from the ‘hard’ sciences) it presents neuroscience in an engineering-style without using too much biology jargon.
