7th G-Node Winter Course on Neural Data Analysis

Munich, February 23 - 27, 2015

The G-Node Winter Course on Neural Data Analysis is held on a yearly basis. This 7th course will give hands-on experience with neural data analysis for PhD students and young postdocs. Participants with either theoretical or experimental background are equally invited. Participants may have a theoretical background with interest in analyzing biological (or simulated) data, or they may come from an experimental background, interested in new ways of analyzing their data.

Participants must have ample programming skills in Matlab or Python. Most analysis tools will have to be programmed by the individual participant, under the guidance of tutors. Participants should show interest in model-driven analyses and be open to theoretical approaches to data analysis. Likewise, they should be interested in the practical analysis of real biological data.

· Short-term synaptic plasticity · Spectral analysis · Mutual information · Machine learning · Neural tuning and decoding ·
