Stream Neuroscience VIII Summer School AACIMP-2013

Stream Neuroscience

VIII Summer School “Achievements and Applications of Contemporary Informatics, Mathematics and Physics” (AACIMP-2013)

The stream “Neuroscience” includes a broad range of topics from subcellular level to cognition and social behaviour considered mainly from computational point of view. It provides all required information to understand the biological bases of modelled processes.
Preliminary topics of the stream are:

  • Neurodynamic, types of excitability, bursting and bistability
  • Dynamic clamp or Neuron-Computer Interface
  • Spatial property of neurons, multicompartment models
  • Local and global neural networks, synchronization and oscillations
  • Brain networks, specific mediator systems and behavior
  • Molecular  and cellular mechanisms of pain
  • Specific perceptions: Auditory, Visual, Somatosensory
  • Brain-Computer Interface

Prerequisites: no prior knowledge in the field is expected.

Tutors:

  • Dr. Anton Chizhov, Senior Researcher, Ioffe Physical Technical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Saint Petersburg, Russia.
  • Dr. Gennady S. Cymbalyuk, Assistant Professor, Dynamical Neuroscience Laboratory, Neuroscience Institute, Georgia State University, Atlanta USA.
  • Prof. Witali Dunin-Barkowski, Professor, Department of Neuroinfomatics, Scientific Research Institute for System Analysis, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia.
