Speaker: : Dan Goodman

This lesson describes spike timing-dependent plasticity (STDP), a biological process that adjusts the strength of connections between neurons in the brain, and how one can implement or mimic this process in a computational model. You will also find links for practical exercises at the bottom of this page.

This lecture on model types introduces the advantages of modeling, provide examples of different model types, and explain what modeling is all about. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 27:48
Speaker: : Gunnar Blohm

This lecture focuses on how to get from a scientific question to a model using concrete examples. We will present a 10-step practical guide on how to succeed in modeling. This lecture contains links to 2 tutorials, lecture/tutorial slides, suggested reading list, and 3 recorded Q&A sessions.

Difficulty level: Beginner

Speaker: : Megan Peters

This lecture formalizes modeling as a decision process that is constrained by a precise problem statement and specific model goals. We provide real-life examples on how model building is usually less linear than presented in Modeling Practice I

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 22:51
Speaker: : Gunnar Blohm

This lecture focuses on the purpose of model fitting, approaches to model fitting, model fitting for linear models, and how to assess the quality and compare model fits. We will present a 10-step practical guide on how to succeed in modeling.
