CAAM/NEUR 415: Theoretical Neuroscience
Biophysical Modeling and Computation from Cell to Network
Final Project: Review and reproduce the major findings of a research paper in
computational neuroscience. Your review should be at least 6 pages long, single spaced, with
intro, body, conclusions, references and
well labeled figures with legends. The figures should be integrated into the text, not full
page appendices. MATLAB code will go in an appendix and does not count toward the 6 pages.
You may (in fact are encouraged) to work with one other person. Your review
is due in class Thursday Nov 29, where you will be given 5 minutes to give the class an
oral executive summary, with slides. Recommended resources: we make many references to
basic papers in our text. See also the texts by C. Koch, Ermentrout & Terman, Izekevich, and
Gerstner and Kistler. See also the
Encyclopedia of Computational Neuroscience. See also the the journals in this
