The students will receive a numerical grade. Assistance to all the sessions is mandatory. Absence to a session has to be notified by e-mail to the instructor and the coordinator of the course (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com). The evaluation of the students will be based on the following aspects:
Assistance to the class sessions
Active participation in the theoretical and practical sessions
Solving the assigned homework, based on tutorials from the software “Neurons in Action 2”. The homework assignments will be presented during the introductory class.
A written exam. The exam will consist of short questions based on the content of the lectures. Some questions could be a problem, requiring basic calculation, or the analysis of a graph or data from a research paper.
To pass the course, the students need to score at least a 5 (on 0 to 10 scale) in the written exam.
