Heavy use will be made of mathematical, statistical, and computational methods. The course is open to anyone, although students should feel comfortable with linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, and probability theory at the level found in Boas (Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences) or Arfken (Mathematical Methods for Physicists).
The course textbook is Theoretical Neuroscience by Dayan and Abbot.
