Title: Theories of Cortical Circuit Dynamics and Computation
Instructor(s): Brent Doiron
Class Schedule: Sec 1: TR 3:30 PM–4:50 PM in Jones 226
Description: This course will present mathematical frameworks for the construction and analysis of contemporary models of cortical circuits. Topics will include: models of neuronal spiking and synaptic dynamics, balanced networks, mean field theory of cortical networks, diffusion approximation and linear response in stochastically forced neuronal networks, models of decision making and working memory, information flow in cortical networks.
