| Course Content || The course is intended to give a mathematical refresher about all the mathematics needed in the everyday life of a neuroscientist, and in particular, in other courses of the program. An excercise assignment will be handed out at the beginning of the term in order to assess the level of mathematical background of the audience. The level of the course will be chosen according to the results of this excercise. |
The course itself will consist of two main parts: (i) An introduction to Linear Algebra and (ii) an introduction to Calculus. The introduction to Linear Algebra will mainly cover vector- and matrix manipulations. The introduction to Calculus we will cover integration, differentiation and some Fourier Analysis.
Whenever possible, examples from neuroscience will accompany the subject matter. We will try to adjust the contents of the lessons as well as possible to the needs of the students.
