Computational neuroscience aims to understand the brain through theoretical, mathematical and computational means. This field is in full expansion leading to new tools to understand and study the brain at different scales, to simulate neuronal and cognitive mechanisms, and to build programs or machines having properties mimicking those of the nervous system.The aim of this course is to familiarize students with scientific modelling in the field of Neuroscience, as well as with the modern tools underlying this approach. This course is meant to be accessible to biologists, psychologists, engineers, as well as clinicians. This training course shows the generic nature of this approach through heterogeneous examples. It emphasizes the tight link between modelling and empirical work: from the early formulation of hypotheses, with qualitative and quantitative predictions, the challenge of optimizing the experimental design (including simulations), data analysis using mathematical models (model validation, inference, model comparison, parameter estimation, conclusion and report of results). As an extension of the M1 NeuroComp training course, this teaching mixes theoretical courses and group works, covering both physiological and cognitive aspects of brain activity. Conference series are given by national and international experts. Extensive time is dedicated to discussions between the students and the speakers, aiming to develop in-depth scientific reasoning and networking.
