神经科学未来的发展趋势,国内很少有人做这一块的,本科硕士也都没有这门课
只有英文字幕,且两周的课听下来发现真的需要掌握很多先修知识,对于心理系学生来说有挺大难度
有几段课程视频反复看三四遍才能比较清楚的理解教授的思路,当然,如果有小伙伴能一起讨论该是会轻松很多!

About the Course
Understanding how the brain works is one of the fundamental challenges in science today. This course will introduce you to basic computational techniques for analyzing, modeling, and understanding the behavior of cells and circuits in the brain.
We will explore the computational principles governing various aspects of vision, sensory-motor control, learning, and memory. Specific topics that will be covered include representation of information by spiking neurons, processing of information in neural networks, and algorithms for adaptation and learning. We will make use of Matlab/Octave exercises to gain a deeper understanding of concepts and methods introduced in the course.
The course is primarily aimed at senior undergraduates and beginning graduate students, as well as professionals and distance learners interested in learning how the brain processes information.
Recommended Background: Familiarity with basic concepts in linear algebra, calculus, and probability theory. Specifically, ability to understand simple equations involving vectors and matrices, differentiate simple functions, and understand what a probability distribution is. For video lectures reviewing these topics, please visit the Linear Algebra, Calculus, and Probability sections of Khanacademy.org. For homeworks, some familiarity with Matlab or Octave would be useful. No prior background in neuroscience is required.
Recommended Textbook: The lectures will roughly follow topics covered in the textbook Theoretical Neuroscience: Computational and Mathematical Modeling of Neural Systems by Peter Dayan and Larry Abbott (MIT Press).
