Withdrawal

It is not allowed to withdraw from this subject after the registration deadline.

Summary

The student will engage in a laboratory-based project in the field of computational neuroscience in one of the research labs of the EPFL working in this field.

Content

A typical project will involve a theoretical or computationally-oriented project in the field of neuroscience. The projects are available on the web sites of SV laboratories or discussed directly with a potential head of lab.

The students are confronted with the realization of a research project integrating specific aspects of neuroscience, computation, and mathematical theorz. This project will allow them to apply, to concrete problems,  skills of computational neuroscience as well as transversal skills acquired during their studies.

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Expected student activities

Students will focus on hands-on computational and mathematical approaches depending on the project. Students will read and discuss assigned papers from the original scientific literature. As part of the evaluation process, students are required to submit a written report and give an oral presentation that summarizes and interprets their results.

Assessment methods

Continuous control

Written report

Oral presentation

Supervision

Others Typically, the student will be matched with a secondary mentor (this will usually be a senior PhD student or a Postdoctoral Fellow) who will take responsibility for the day-to-day supervision and training of the student.

Resources

Bibliography

Appropriate reading materials will be assigned by the student's mentor depending on the
nature of the research project. The assigned reading material will usually comprise original research papers, review articles, and secondary sources (e.g., books).
