Level: This is a course planned with the needs in mind of a graduate student starting as a PhD student at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit.
Style: The presentation will be as fairly formal lectures, each aiming to:
- outline a particular class of methods
- give examples of it being applied to realistic situations
- indicate how to implement it using software available at MRC CBU.
All talks will be given by Peter Watson of the MRC CBU.
