Computational Neuroscience from my Point of View
Computational neuroscience is a highly interdisciplinary field ranging from mathematics, physics and engineering to biology, medicine and psychology. In this webinar series, experts describe their view on computational neuroscience in theory and application, and share experiences they had with interdisciplinary projects.
