Summer School in Neuroscience

Summer School in Neuroscience

NRSN offers an annual summer school that provides PhD students with theoretical and practical research training in current forefront areas of neuroscience. The summer school is organized each year by a different research institution in Norway, drawing on local expertise combined with contributions from international faculty. The summer school is intended for PhD students in neuroscience, and priority will be given to members of NRSN. Other participants may be accepted if there are still places available.


2022 summer school

Mathematical Methods in Computational Neuroscience

Dates: 20th July - 5th August 2022

Place: Fred Kavli Science Center, Eresfjord, Norway

Computational Neuroscience and Inference from data are disciplines that extensively use tools from Mathematics and Physics to understand the behavior of model neuronal networks and analyze data from real experiments. Due to its interdisciplinary nature and the complexity of the neuronal networks, the list of techniques that are borrowed from Physics and Mathematics is an extensive one. Although using tools from standard curriculum of Physics, Mathematics and Engineering is common, more advanced research requires methods and techniques that are not usually covered in any single discipline. 

To fill in this gap, this summer school covers some of the most important methods used in computational neuroscience research through both main lectures and scientific seminars (5-6 main lectures per topic and 1-2 seminars by each invited seminar speaker).

Organizers: Yasser Roudi, Ivan Davidovich and Benjamin Dunn, Chewy (Chief Security Officer)

Applications will open soon. More information can be found here.
