This lecture covers modeling the neuron in silicon, modeling vision and audition and sensory fusion using a deep network.
Presentation of past and present neurocomputing approaches and hybrid analog/digital circuits that directly emulate the properties of neurons and synapses.
Presentation of the Brian neural simulator, where models are defined directly by their mathematical equations and code is automatically generated for each specific target.
This lecture covers describing and characterizing an input-output relationship.
Part 1 of 2 of a tutorial on statistical models for neural data
Part 2 of 2 of a tutorial on statistical models for neural data.
From the retina to the superior colliculus, the lateral geniculate nucleus into primary visual cortex and beyond, this lecture gives a tour of the mammalian visual system highlighting the Nobel-prize winning discoveries of Hubel & Wiesel.
This lecture provides an overview of depression (epidemiology and course of the disorder), clinical presentation, somatic co-morbidity, and treatment options.
What is the difference between attention and consciousness? This lecture describes the scientific meaning of consciousness, journeys on the search for neural correlates of visual consciousness, and explores the possibility of consciousness in other beings and even non-biological structures.
Introduction to the types of glial cells, homeostasis (influence of cerebral blood flow and influence on neurons), insulation and protection of axons (myelin sheath; nodes of Ranvier), microglia and reactions of the CNS to injury.
This lecture covers an Introduction to neuron anatomy and signaling, and different types of models, including the Hodgkin-Huxley model.
