Description: 

Interested in computational neuroscience?  A worldwide open online computational neuroscience summer school: Neuromatch Academy will take place July 13-31, 2020 (https://neuromatch.io/academy/). Applications are now open. This course will cater to beginners and advanced researchers, both with experimental and theoretical background!

The pandemic has shut down nearly every summer program in the world at which students, postdocs and faculty would normally gather to acquire crucial skills and build networks.  We’ve set up a program to replace this loss. Our plan is to have an online course in late July focused on computational analysis and simulation of neural data with intensive mentoring by knowledgeable TAs and faculty mentors to help with projects. Tuition will be relatively minimal  (~ !100-200 USD) and also voluntary. TAs will be paid a stipend for their time because it will be intensive. Mentorship by faculty will be substantially less work.
