EPFLx: Simulating a Hippocampus Microcircuit
In this course, you will learn to simulate, analyze and visualize hippocampal microcircuits. You will reproduce experimental protocols “in silico” to validate simulated microcircuit behaviors, and leverage the brain simulation platform to gain insights towards parsimonious theories on brain function.
There is one session available:

About this courseSkip About this 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.
In this course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to analyze and simulate microcircuit models of the rodent hippocampus.
This course is part of a series of three courses, where you will learn to use state-of-the-art modeling tools of the Human Brain Project 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!
