“The sensory-triggered activity of a neuron is typically characterized in terms of a tuning curve, which describes the neuron’s average response as a function of a parameter that characterizes a physical stimulus. What determines the shapes of tuning curves in a neuronal population?”

2nd CALL FOR PAPERS
IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning 2007
Imperial College London, 11-13 July 2007
http://www.icdl07.org
http://www.icdl07.org/cfp.pdf
Development and Learning are fundamental properties of any cognitive system, whether natural or artificial, and have attracted the attention of psychologists, neuroscientists, roboticists and artificial intelligence researchers. The International Conference on Development and Learning strives to bring together this interdisciplinary audience to encourage understanding and cross-fertilization of ideas from the different disciplines. Now in its 6th year, ICDL 2007 will have the theme of “Assisting Development” to encourage participants to consider the application of their research to the conceptualization, design and implementation of systems that can assist development.

Understanding how the brain codes and processes information is one of the major challenges of neuroscience.The Manchester Neural Coding Workshop will address this fundamental problem by bringing together leading international speakers from computational neuroscience, systems neuroscience and neuro-engineering.
The aim of the workshop is to present cutting edge research on neural coding from a multidisciplinary perspective.
