A Very Basic Introduction to Computational Neuroscience

- I'm a computer scientist.
- I think we really don't understand something until we can make
a computational model of it.
- In neuroscience, these are typically called in-silico models, and
there is a lot that can be said about the quality of models
(both computational and non-computational).
- So I'm going to give a very basic talk about computational models
- I'm also computational neuroscientist. I work in the Human
Brain Project developing models of neural systems.
- My neural systems uses pretty simple models of neurons and synapses.
The underlying topology (the way the neurons are connected) is also
pretty simple, and not particularly biologically realistic. I am
however intereseted in neuro-cognitive models.
