Advanced Mathematical Sciences I (FY2009)

Mathematical Modeling and Analysis in Neuroscience

 Experimental Science and Theoretical Science have remarkably developed toward elucidation of various phenomena in Neuroscience. However, increasingly complex phenomena are confronting us currently.
  This subject will especially focus on Mathematical Modeling of Excitable Cells and Neural Tissue, and the latest study will be lectured with specific phenomena.
 The Lectures in this subject will be given in omnibus style by top international researchers covering the latest topics regarding mathematical biology field including Neuroscience study. Inter-departmental and interdisciplinary approaches are necessary.
  All lectures will be given in English.
