The Dynamic Brain

The Dynamic Brain
From its structural organization, to changes in neuronal connectivity associated with learning, to transient modulation associated with cognitive processes like attention and emotion, the brain relies on multiple processes to generate dynamic patterns of brain activity. These brain activity patterns, in turn, form the basis for diverse brain functions and even our conscious experience. In this course, through background lectures and class discussion of primary scientific literature, we will explore the underpinnings of dynamic brain activity and work towards developing an overall model of how the brain functions.
