Summer School in Nonlinear Dynamics: Applications to Neuroscience and Psychology
Hosted by NSERC-CREATE in Complex Dynamics and CAMBAM
Living systems are typical examples of dynamical systems with many interrelated parts or subsystems, from small-scale cellular relationships to large-scale population relationships. Nonlinear dynamics arise when the behaviour of one subsystem, with its own dynamics, becomes the input for another subsystem, imposing certain constraints on its dynamics. Nonlinear dynamics underlie our developmental trajectory; the spread of information in human neural networks and disease; and the prediction of evolving systems in changing environments. We plan to provide young scientists with hands-on knowledge of nonlinear dynamics in life sciences and computer tools to guide new analyses.
In this 2-week online summer school, expert instructors from CREATE, CAMBAM, and around the world will deliver lectures and computer labs devoted to advancements in nonlinear dynamics. Recent topics include: machine learning applications; computational neuroscience developments; and infectious disease (COVID-19) and communication transmission.
