[Comp-neuro] Neuroscience workshop : “From Cellular to Circuit and Brain Functions: Passing through Mathematical Models”

Hello All,

We are glad to bring this to your notice. 

Pre-Conference Neuroscience workshop
10th August 2013 
at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi, Kerala, India. 

The technical program of the workshop will include neurophysiology, brain imaging, computational neuroscience of single neurons, and tools in neuroinformatics. Case studies in computational neuroscience (cerebellar microcircuits and reconstructing local field potentials) will target mixed groups of students and researchers with and without prior experience in this field. Novel techniques and approaches in computational modelling in neuroscience will be featured. 

Speakers include:
Upinder Bhalla - Dean, NCBS, Bengaluru, India
Egidio D'Angelo - Director, Brain Connectivity Center and Professor of Physiology, University of Pavia, Italy
Gaute Einevoll - Professor, UMB, Norway and INCF-Norway coordinator 
Sergio Solinas - University of Pavia, Italy
Claudia Wheeler Kingshott - University College London, UK
Shyam Diwakar - Amrita University, India

This workshop precedes the 4-day International conference on Biotechnology for Innovative Applications, to be held at Amrita University's Amritapuri campus at Kollam, Kerala. 

The topics of this Neuroscience workshop include lectures on:
  • Brain functions from cellular elements: foundation of the issue
  • Neurons and circuits of the cerebellum: an integrated view
  • MRI
  • Computational Neuroscience and mathematical biophysics of detailed models
  • Modeling Local Field potential from Mathematical models
  • Modeling Ionic behavior
  • Brain Imaging

Registration for Workshop and for the Conference is Now Open!!! Some funding for Indian students is also available. 

Participants may also register at the conference to meet other speakers including many from Neuroscience track. 

We will be happy to welcome you at our campuses in Cochin and Amritapuri (Kerala, India).
