Research in Encoding and Decoding of
25-29 June 2014
Nomikos Conference Center
A fundamental problem in neuroscience is to understand how the
activation of large populations of neurons gives rise to higher
order functions of the brain including learning, memory, cognition,
perception, action and ultimately conscious awareness.
Electrophysiological recordings have revealed considerable
information about the firing patterns of single neurons, but it
remains largely a mystery how collections of individual neurons
interact to perform these functions. Understanding ensemble
activity is critical to understanding the brain.
Toward that end, the AREADNE Conferences have been created to
gather global scientific leaders who work on neural ensembles and
create a touch-point for the widely disparate and hybrid field.
With a spectacular setting on Santorini, the conferences have
been carefully planned to foster discussion and interaction
between attendees to encourage the establishment of lasting
professional relationships. The meetings continue our efforts to
promote systems neuroscience in Greece through creating a
world-class forum for cutting-edge research.
FORMAT AND SPEAKERS
The conference will span four days of presentations, in morning and early
evening sessions. Confirmed speakers include experts in the field of
multi-neuron experiment, theory, and analysis (in alphabetic order):
In addition to our expert speakers, we have an august list of
session moderators to keep the discussions lively and
