A fascinating course on neural computation. Michale Fee articulates difficult ideas in an easily digestible manner. It’s quite an interdisciplinary course as it draws from concepts in biochemistry, CS, math, ML, physics, and neuroscience. The course definitely increased my appreciation for the complexity of neurons. And the last class is on Hopfield networks!
