Model Types II (Outro Lecture)

Difficulty level

This lecture is part of the Neuromatch Academy (NMA), a massive, interactive online summer school held in 2020 that provided participants with experiences spanning from hands-on modeling experience to meta-science interpretation skills across just about everything that could reasonably be included in the label "computational neuroscience". 


This lecture summarizes the concepts introduced in Model Types I and further explains how models can be used answer different scientific questions. 

Topics covered in this lesson
  • Summary of the “what”, “how”, and “why” model types from the tutorials
  • Explain why different models answer different questions 
  • Examples of how different questions lead to different models and how these different models can answer different types of questions.
