The Modeling Electrophysiological Activities: From Single Neuron to Nervous Tissue online course is designed for researchers, neuroscientists, physiologists and students who are new to this topic and those who already have some experience with animal electrophysiology data (spike, Local Field Potential (LFP) and EEG) and would like to improve their existing knowledge. This hands-on course will provide you with theoretical and experimental aspects of modeling electrophysiological activities. The course will involve a combination of lectures, discussions, and laboratory activities. During this course, you will learn about extracellular recording from rat models and also working with single-unit and LFP data. Registration includes workshop materials and a certificate of attendance upon completion of the course.
What is Extracellular recording?:
Extracellular recordings are used to monitor neuronal activity from outside the cell. It provides a means to measure patterns of action potentials within many areas of the peripheral and central nervous systems.
What is Local Field Potential (LFP)?:
Field potentials are probably the most common extracellular signals being recorded including ECG, EMG and EEG. Extracellular field potentials are local current sinks or sources that are generated by the collective activity of many cells. Usually, a field potential is generated by the simultaneous activation of many neurons by synaptic transmission. Potentials can either be recorded invasively or non-invasively on the skin.
What is single neuron recording?:
Single neuron recording is the use of an electrode to record the electrophysiological activity (action potentials) from a single neuron. Single-Cell Recording is a technique used in researches to observe changes in voltage or current in a neuron. This process is usually concurrent with some sort of stimuli.
What you will learn?:
Question the data
Dynamical system in neurosciences
Models from the single neuron to the network
Global measures (LFP, etc…)
Large scale models
Implementation method and practice
Who can take the course?:
The course participants will come from a variety of disciplines, including electrophysiology, physiology, neuroscience, neuro-electrophysiology, pharmacology, cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology, biomedical engineering, etc. This multi-disciplinary group of participants reflects the broad use of electrophysiology science across the many domains. The participants will also represent a variety of career stages, including students, graduates, professors, etc.
