In the written examination, an overview of the various aspects of computational neuroscience will be tested. Knowledge-based learning outcomes from the lecture as well as the understanding and ability to solve (practical) problems will be assessed in a 60 min written examination with questions set and corrected by the respective lecturers. on the exam please get in touch with
