Overview

Key facts

You will learn how:

  • the brain is believed to work on the cellular, network and systems level
  • to develop mathematical models of brain function and use them in simulations
  • cognitive phenomena relate to brain activity
  • current AI algorithms are based on neuroscience findings
  • a range of experimental approaches are used to measure and analyse brain function

There will be particular focus on how:

  • memories are stored and organised in the brain
  • networks of neurons perform computations
  • visual illusions find their origins in neural circuits
