The Neuromatch Academy
The Neuromatch Academy will be an open, online, 3-week intensive tutorial-based computational neuroscience training event (July 13-31, 2020). Participants from undergraduate to professors as well as industry are welcome. Based on a recent poll, we expect 1000+ participants from beginners to advanced. The Neuromatch Academy will introduce traditional and emerging computational neuroscience tools, their complementarity, and what they can tell us about the brain. A main focus is not just on using the techniques, but on understanding how they relate to biological questions. The school will be Python-based making use of Google Colab. The Academy will also include professional development / meta-science, model interpretation, and networking sessions. The goal is to give participants the computational background needed to do research in neuroscience.
Overall structure: Signals (Week 1), Statistics, Behaviors, Neurons (Week 2), Machine Learning and advanced approaches (Week 3).
The organisers have opened up an observers option for those who wish to attend and access the materials but can’t commit to the full school. Sign up here
