CNV: Computational Neuroscience of Vision

This is the home page for the School of Informatics course "CNV: Computational Neuroscience of Vision", given by James A. Bednar in January-March 2011.

This course uses the Topographica neural simulator and the Computational Maps in the Visual Cortex book; see the and web sites for more details on the simulator and book.

You will get a chance to run simulations of visual cortex development and function, and gain an understanding of what modeling can achieve, what it cannot, and how modeling can be done well. See the course for more details on the topics to be covered.
