Advanced Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience
This 10 day School on Advanced Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience is being held with the support of theIBRO's Regional Committees of Africa, Europe and Asia/Pacific and UNESCO. The focus will be on "learning and memory - from experiment to models".
The goal of this School is to kick-start the creative and innovative capabilities of students in developing countries (and all over the world) in international research and innovation as well as to promote the commercialization of intellectual property. This School is a maiden attempt within the IBRO framework to groom young researchers in Africa, Asia, theMiddle East, Australia and Europe in an area that we believe can give vital insight into the complexities of neuroscience and also help experimentalists in designing more computationally useful experiments. A world-class group of lecturers from Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa will provide students with a view into state-of-art research on how the brain processes, stores and retrieves information. The students will learn how to model and simulate these processes from experimental insights and to apply them to robotics and other intelligent devices.
30 students (PhD and Masters) will be selected from across the world (Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Australia and Europe) and fully sponsored to attend the school.
Decisions will be based on poster/abstracts of Neuroscience research by those students demonstrating an interest in Computational Neurosciences but the full application procedure and requirements can be found on the website.
For further information please see the application procedure on IBRO.
The deadline for applications is 29th July, 2011(but should there be an insufficient response, this may be extended to the end of August, 2011).
