Neuroscience is nowadays one of the most collaborative and active
scientific research fields
as it has been increasingly involving the participation of experts from
other disciplines.
In particular, computational and mathematical aspects of neuroscience
are currently playing
an important role both in modeling and replicating experimental findings
and in explaining
the underlying mechanisms of neurophysiological or cognitive processes.
Differential equations
are ubiquitous in the modeling of such phenomena and, consequently,
nonlinear dynamics and
dynamical systems techniques become fundamental sources of new
mathematical and computational tools
to study neuroscience models.

The aim of this Workshop on Neurodynamics (NDy'14) is to present an
overview of successful achievements
in this rapidly developing collaborative field by putting together
different types of applications
of nonlinear dynamics (geometrical tools in dynamical systems, numerical
methods, computational schemes,
dynamical measures,...) to different problems in neuroscience
(mononeuronal dynamics, network activity,
cognitive problems,...). Additional emphasis will be put on experimental
findings seeking for
theoretical explanations, and therefore this meeting is focussed on
using mathematics as the
primary tool for elucidating the fundamental mechanisms responsible for
experimentally observed behavior
in the applied neurosciences. Importantly, it will draw attention to,
those pieces of
mathematical theory which are likely to be relevant to future studies of
the brain. The final goal
is spreading together mathematical methodology and neuroscience
challenges and stimulating
future cross-collaborations among participants, being Mathematical
the generic topic for NDy'14.

The workshop length will be 4 days, distributed in special sessions and
with several round tables on different topics.
