Methods, Neurons, Networks and Behaviors
June 13 – June 30, 2011. Okinawa, Japan

The aim of the Okinawa Computational Neuroscience Course is to provide opportunities for young researchers with theoretical backgrounds to learn the latest advances in neuroscience, and for those with experimental backgrounds to have hands-on experience in computational modeling. Graduate students and postgraduate researchers are invited to participate in the course, held from June 13th through June 30th, 2011 at an oceanfront seminar house of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology.

Applications are through the course web page only; they will open January 3rd and close February 14th, 2011. Applicants are required to propose a project at the time of application. Applicants will receive confirmation of acceptance in March. Like in preceding years, OCNC will be a comprehensive three-week course covering single neurons, networks, and behaviors with ample time for student projects. The first week will focus exclusively on methods with hands-on tutorials during the afternoons, while the second and third weeks will have lectures by international experts. Those who are interested in integrating experimental and computational approaches are invited at each level, as well as in bridging different levels of complexity.

The sponsor will provide lodging and meals during the course and support travel for those without funding.
