Course materials

Our goal is to educate undergraduate, graduate, and postdoc researchers from diverse backgrounds in the philosophy and methods of computational neuroscience. We have enlisted a team of leading researchers to provide lectures and tutorial materials for each of the concepts we aim to teach.

We have produced 15 days of content for NMA 2020, in the form of lectures and interactive coding tutorials hosted in Google Colab. Each day has been tested in front a live audience and edited to create polished materials. More than 300 person-hours have been spent writing, testing, editing and polishing each day of content. We make them freely available to the community under a CC-BY-4.0 license.
