Statistical Models of the Brain

Statistical Models of the Brain is a course in computational neuroscience I began teaching in 2011. Brent Doiron co-taught it with me on 4 occasions, 2016-2019. It has evolved a lot, mainly in terms of refined focus and pedagogy.

A quick video summary (less than 5 minutes) of the Spring 2021 version may be found here: Wrap up

In 2021 I decided to create short video lectures, 15-30 minutes, that students would view prior to class. Topics with links are listed below.
