Interdisciplinary tutorials in neurosciences (TINS)

Biology Master, ENS
Year : M2
Coordination : Boris Barbour, Biology Department, ENS, Vincent Hakim, Physics Department, ENS, BRETTE Romain
Hours : 60 h (6 h lecture, 54 h personal work)
Credits : 6 ECTS
Semester : 1st semester
Number of students : 10

Aims : In depth study of a research topic related to neuronal networks, based on literature analysis, optional modelling, and close supervision by both a theoretician and an experimental researchers.

Themes : Understanding the brain will require the development of effective abstractions and simplifications of its complexity. Research in this field is active at the interface between theoretical and experimental neuroscience. This module offers insight into such interdisciplinary research in a tutorial setting with active theoretical and experimental neuroscientists. Students should be motivated by interdisciplinary approaches in Neuroscience and be capable of benefiting from both theoretical and experimental aspects of neuroscience research.

Organization : Method : Supervised bibliographical analysis, discussion with mentors, possible data mining and analysis, and modeling.
