About the course

Simulation Neuroscience is an emerging approach to integrate the knowledge dispersed throughout the field of neuroscience.

The aim is to build a unified empirical picture of the brain, to study the biological mechanisms of brain function, behaviour and disease. This is achieved by integrating diverse data sources across the various scales of experimental neuroscience, from molecular to clinical, into computer simulations.

This is a unique, massive open online course taught by a multi-disciplinary team of world-renowned scientists.In this first course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to create simulations of biological neurons and synapses.

This course is part of a series of three courses, where you will learn to use
state-of-the-art modeling tools of the HBP Brain Simulation Platform to simulate neurons, build neural networks, and perform your own simulation experiments.
We invite you to join us and share in our passion to reconstruct, simulate and understand the brain!
