Course objectives

The goal of this part of the course will be to offer a general  introduction to Computational Neuroscience, with a particular attention to the use and application of tools typical of Statistical Mechanics and Theoretical Physics to Neuroscience.

Oggetto:

Results of learning outcomes

Knowledge and Understanding:

At the end of course the student will reach a good knowledge of the most advanced results in Network Theory and in inference methods applied to Computational Neuroscience.


Applying Knowledge and Understanding:

The knowledge acquired during the lectures will be applied to the solution of simple problems in network theory and bayesian statistics

Program

The course deals with the following items:

1) Introduction to network theory. In particular we shall discuss:

- General properties of networks: degree distribution, heterogeneous versus homogeneus networks, definitions of distance, density, clustering and assortativity of networks.

- Community detection in networks

- Introduction to the Erdos-Renyi model

- Introduction to the Barabasi model.

2) Introduction to statistical mechanics with applications to information theory:

- Shannon entropy

- KL divegence and mutual information

- Minimum description Length

3) Introduction to Artificial Neural Netwoks,

- Mutilayer Perceptrons: properties, learning rules and training procedure

- Introduction to the Hopfield Model: Hebb’s rule, associative memories
