This study track is intended for those with a background in neurobiology looking to gain a basic understanding of how informatics approaches can be used in their research.
Neuroinformatics is a research field concerned with the organization of neuroscience data by the application of computational models and analytical tools. These areas of research are important for the integration and analysis of increasingly large-volume, high-dimensional, and fine-grain experimental data. There are three main directions where neuroinformatics has to be applied: i. the development of tools and databases for management and sharing of neuroscience data at all levels of analysis, ii. the development of tools for analyzing and modeling neuroscience data, and iii. the development of computational models of the nervous system and neural processes.
