St. Petersburg, Russia from April, 27 to May, 5 2008.

The school will emphasize the role of modeling as a knowledge structuring tool.The lectures will describe the use of mathematical model-based approaches to infer knowledge from the experimental data and statistical models used for establishing significance of findings. Additional goals of the school are to bridge the gap between future cellular and cognitiveneuroscientists and to attract the students majoring in physics and math to the field of computational neuroscience.
Applications are welcome from advanced Ph.D. students and young post-docs with interest in all fields of neuroscience as well as students with physics/math major. A total of 30 students will be accepted. Meals and accomodation are covered for all accepted students, limited number of travel awards is available.
Application deadline, February, 15, 2008.
Registration fee: 100 Euro (fee can be waived for students with advanced records)
Cellular neuroscience: biophysics of ionic channels, synaptic and circumneuronal signal transmission, synaptic plasticity, techniques of imaging and electrophysiology Cognitive neuroscience: memory, attention, language, brain imaging , multi-modal integration in cognitive data analysis, event-related potentials and fields
Computational neuroscience: single-neuron and neural populationmodeling, dynamic causal modeling (DCM), non-parametric statistical analysis of EEG/MEG data
