I am currently taking a computational neuroscience class in my bachelor’s. To make things stick I thought that I want to write down what I learn. I think more thoroughly when I have to make it convincing or explain it to someone else (Insert cheesy, obligatory, Richard Feynman Quote here). Also, I found that there is no good resource online about computational neuroscience that isn’t directed towards people who lack a lot of the necessary prerequisites. They all seem to assume that you know about basic relationships between electrical properties and so on. I didn’t. And often, when I found something helpful, I felt like there is something missing - some jigsaw piece remains until I fully grasp it.
So, if you are interested in learning about computational neuroscience, be sure to check this out.
Intended audience:
This can get pretty mathy sometimes. And it can also go pretty deep into electrical engineering as well. I was pretty overwhelmed by this too. Thus, my perspective when writing is this: how can I explain this so somebody who dropped out of physics in 9th grade? (that’s what I did).
Happy learning! It’s actually pretty fascinating.
