Mathematics of the Mind in Sprout Fall 17
What is a "brain network"? How can algebra be used to help us understand mental illness? In this course, you will learn how neuroscientists use mathematics to understand data, design experiments, and interpret results. You will learn how some types of math can be used to tackle problems that neuroscientists grapple with each day. You will discover how we can use mathematical techniques to discover the human "connectome" - the full network of connections in the brain. This course assumes knowledge of mathematics up through algebra; additional themes, such as matrices and graph theory, will be developed during the course.
