NEUR 368 - Theories about Vision

4 credits
This upper-level course introduces modern ideas about vision, based on empirical findings and guided by mathematical and computational considerations. We will consider how inherent ambiguities of the visual stimuli may be resolved through statistical inferences and estinamtions, and how such computations are impllemented by the population of neurons. We will study elementary information theory as a means of quantifying the information-processing capacity of the visual cortex. This course will emphasize theoretical approaches to neuroscience, and complement the existing neuroscience curriculum, where the existing strength includes the study of the neural systems at the molecular, cellular, systems, and behavioral levels with the experimental techniques.
