Tutorials on neuronal data analysis

Author: Prof. Dr.phil.nat. Walter Senn
Location: Seminarraum 259, Institut für Physiologie, Bühlplatz 5
Fri 25. January 2019 8:30 - 12:00

The Institute of Physiology, as part of the Interfacultary Research Cooperation on Sleep at the University of Bern, organises tutorials on neuronal data analysis.

Experts who are involved in analysing neuronal data from the Institute of Physiology will give tutorial lectures on the techniques they are using. The idea is that interested PI’s and students get familiarised with these techniques to also apply them to own data. Each tutorial will consist of roughly a 20’ lecture with another 40’ for interactions and discussion at the blackboard.

The tutorials are seen as an initialisation for an internal education on neuronal data analysis within and across the experimental and theory groups of the IRC, but interested students from the outside of this consortium are also cordially welcome.

Here is schedule for the first series of tutorials:

8:30 – 9:30Dr. João Sacramento / Benjamin Ehret (Institute of Neuroinformatics, ETHZ / UNIZH)
«Extracting some temporal structure from posterio-parietal cortical recordings in the behaving mouse»
9:30 – 9:45Coffee break / buffer times
9:45 – 10:45Dr. Rui Costa (University of Bristol and Institute of Physiology, Bern)
«Finding (meaningful) low dimensional representations in hippocampus»
10:45 – 11:00Coffee break / buffer time
11:00 – 12:00Dr. Paulo de Luna (Institute of Physiology, Bern)
«Detection of neuronal ensembles in electrophysiological and calcium-imaging data»
