Acknowledgments ๐Ÿ™ยถ

I am grateful to Dr. Deborah Sterns, Joscelin Rocha-Hidalgo, and the Georgetown Center for New Designs in Learning & Scholarship (CNDLS) for allowing me to use their teaching resources throughout the development of this course. I am also grateful to Project Jupyter for making it possible to create and share these materials in a Jupyter Book. I am also grateful to Lin Gan for her contributions and feedback in making enhancements to these materials. The format of this course was largely inspired by the MIND Computational Summer School, Neuromatch Academy, Dr. Maximilian Risenhuberโ€™s Computational Neuroscience course, Dr. Robert C. Wilsonโ€™s Modeling the Mind course, Dr. Luke J. Changโ€™s DartBrains Jupyter Book, the research conducted in Dr. Abigail A. Marshโ€™s Laboratory on Social and Affective Neuroscience, and the countless conversations with my colleagues about the selected topics.
