In this lesson, you will be introducted to a type of neuronal model known as the leaky integrate-and-fire (LIF) model.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:23

This lesson goes over various potential inputs to neuronal synapses, loci of neural communication.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:20

This lesson describes the how and why behind implementing integration time steps as part of a neuronal model.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:08

In this lesson, you will learn about neural spike trains which can be characterized as having a Poisson distribution.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:18

This lesson covers spike-rate adaptation, the process by which a neuron's firing pattern decays to a low, steady-state frequency during the sustained encoding of a stimulus.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:26

This lesson provides a brief explanation of how to implement a neuron's refractory period in a computational model.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 0:42

In this lesson, you will learn a computational description of the process which tunes neuronal connectivity strength, spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP).

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 2:40

This lesson reviews theoretical and mathematical descriptions of correlated spike trains.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 2:54

This lesson investigates the effect of correlated spike trains on spike-timing dependent plasticity (STDP).

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:43

This lesson goes over synaptic normalisation, the homeostatic process by which groups of weighted inputs scale up or down their biases.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 2:58

In this lesson, you will learn about the intrinsic plasticity of single neurons.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 2:08

This lesson covers short-term facilitation, a process whereby a neuron's synaptic transmission is enhanced for a short (sub-second) period.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:58

This lesson describes short-term depression, a reduction of synaptic information transfer between neurons.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:40

This lesson briefly wraps up the course on Computational Modeling of Neuronal Plasticity.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 0:37

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

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 32:30
Speaker: : Megan Peters

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
Duration: 29:52
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. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 26:46
Speaker: : Jan Drugowitsch

This lecture summarizes the concepts introduced in Model Fitting I and adds two additional concepts: 1) MLE is a frequentist way of looking at the data and the model, with its own limitations. 2) Side-by-side comparisons of bootstrapping and cross-validation.

Difficulty level: Beginner

Speaker: : Kunlin Wei

This lecture provides an overview of the generalized linear models (GLM) course, originally a part of the Neuromatch Academy (NMA), an interactive online summer school held in 2020. NMA 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".
