As part of the RTG 2416 MultiSenses – MultiScales, Prof. Dr. Yoram Ben-Shaul (Department of Medical Neurobiology, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel) will give a MatLab workshop on “Spike Sorting – How to Analyze Neuronal Activity”.

The workshop will deal with the analysis of electrophysiological data. More precisely, Prof. Ben-Shaul will give insights into the topic of spike sorting. He will give an overview how to analyze extracellular recorded action potentials and which steps are needed to make a spike sorter work in MatLab. The whole event will be interactive and more like an informal discussion instead of a frontal lecture. It will be suitable for people without a deep knowledge in programming, so don’t be shy.

Since Prof. Ben-Shaul has a strong background in computational neuroscience and, furthermore, is a distinguished teacher, I strongly recommend you to participate if you are interested. You only need to install MatLab on your own Laptop before the workshop.

The workshop will be held on August 16th (Friday) and begins at 11.30 am. It will last approximately 5 hours, including breaks and coffee.

Location: Room 1.011, 2. Sammelbau Biologie, Campus Melaten-Süd, 52074 Aachen
