The 3rd HBP School is jointly organised by the Human Brain Project (HBP) and the Allen Institute for Brain Science (AI) and offers a comprehensive programme covering all aspects of neuroscience relevant to the HBP research programme. Understanding the brain requires an integrated understanding of different scales of organisation spanning genes, channels, cells, microcircuits, brain regions and their roles in behaviour from perception to action in different states including wakefulness and sleep. This course will take the student through the latest data, models and techniques for investigating the different levels of the brain and through the process of putting the pieces together to derive new insights and theories. Workshops each day will guide the student with hands-on experience with the state-of-the-art tools and techniques for neuroinformatics, analysis, modelling and simulation. [read more]
