--------------------------------------- FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT ---------------------------------------

 

International Conference on System Level approaches to Neural Engineering

Dates: September 21st – 23rd , 2015

Venue:  <http://www.prbb.org/> Barcelona Biomedical Research Park, Barcelona, Spain

Website:  <http://www.neural-engineering.eu/BarcelonaConference2015/index.html> http://www.neural-engineering.eu/BarcelonaConference2015/index.html

 

The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to bring together theoretical and experimental neuroscientists and roboticists to discuss the state of the art in the field of Neural Engineering. This three day long event is part of a series of training events organized by the Marie Curie Initial Training Network NETT (Neural Engineering Transformative Technologies). It will also give young researchers an opportunity to present their work. Theme panels are:

 

* Neural Dynamics - mathematical description of neuronal activity

* Brain-on-Chip - engineering of neuronal circuits in-vitro with emphasis on microfluidics

* Neural Learning and Control - motion planning, controlling and learning neuro-inspired techniques for robotics

* Neural Coding - investigation of neuronal strategies for encoding information

* Optical Neurotechnology - imaging and engineering techniques that allow recording of neuronal activity
