|School||School of Informatics
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||This course is a survey of current research in Neuroinformatics in Edinburgh, intended to introduce new students to the Neuroinformatics community and expose them to potential Neuroinformatics PhD research projects. Each week covers a different research area, led by a guest lecturer working in that area.
The set of topics covered in the course varies from semester to semester driven entirely by the research interests of the guest lecturers. Each lecturer presents a general overview of work in his or her field, followed by specific research questions of current interest. The students then discuss these research questions , do readings in the area, attend laboratory sessions, or work exercises of the lecturers choice. Then, in coordination with the lecturer and the course organizers, the students develop ideas for new research in the area, culminating in a set of assessed research proposals covering topics from the course.
