8th G-Node Short Course on Neural Data Analysis

Munich, July 31 - August 4, 2017

The G-Node Course on Neural Data Analysis offers hands-on experience in state-of-the-art methods for analyzing complex neural data to PhD students and postdocs. Participants may have a theoretical background with interest in analyzing biological data, or they may come from an experimental background, interested in new ways of analyzing their data.

Applicants should have an elementary understanding of linear algebra and statistics, as well as basic programming knowledge in either 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.
