To provide knowledge of how the nervous system works and how it's modeled at various levels, from cellular to higher brain functions. Understanding the processes of nerve impulses at the cellular level, and how these are measured and simulated. Understanding how the cells are connected in simple networks, and how these can be simulated. Understanding how the higher functions can be described, modeled and simulated. To understand how nerve signals can be measured through both invasive and non invasive methods. Understanding the basic electronics impedance, gain, and filtering, which is necessary to measure the signals. Understanding the basic signal analysis of nerve signals that spike sorting and correlation.
