[Comp-neuro] Invitation to submit articles to Scientific World Journal

Dear colleagues,


Together with the other guest editors [Paolo Massobrio (University of Genova, Italy), Danny Eytan (The Hospital for Sick Children, Canada), Paolo Bonifazi (Tel Aviv University, Israel) and Paul Tiesinga (Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands)], I have the pleasure to invite you to submit original research articles as well as reviews to the special issue titled ‘Hybrid Systems to Investigate the Computational and Learning Properties of Neuronal Assemblies’ to be published in The Scientific World Journal (

The Scientific World Journal is open access and with an impact factor of 1.730. You can find the call for paper here:


Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

·         Encoding of inputs and retrieval of memories in cultured and simulated neuronal networks

·         Learning and adaptation in cultured networks

·         Electrophysiological experiments in closed-loop systems

·         Mathematical neuronal network models as tools to deduce computational properties of neural circuits

·         Hybrid systems: living networks coupled to artificial ones

·         Software and hardware strategies to manipulate and control neuronal dynamics


Deadline for article submission: March 7th, 2014; Publication date: May 16th, 2014.


We look forward to receiving your contribution!


Best regards
