********************************************************************************

Announcing an intensive summer workshop at the Santa Fe Institute:

FROM NEURON TO NETWORK--BIOPHYSICALLY-BASED FUNCTIONAL MODELS

Dates: July 27 – August 8, 2003
Location: Santa Fe Institute, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
Housing: St. John’s College, Santa Fe, NM
Organizing Committee: Hanna Parnas (Hebrew University), Lee Segel 
(Weizmann Institute of Science), Terry Sejnowski (Salk Institute)


DESCRIPTION

This workshop is designed for graduate students, postdocs and junior 
faculty members with a solid knowledge of neurobiology and an interest 
in using theory. The tasks of the workshop are to introduce participants 
to hands-on computer simulations of small neuronal networks, to realize 
the ability of such models to explain selected experimental results, and 
to provide a vision of future uses of models and simulations in 
providing understanding of function in large neuronal networks, as in 
the brain. Enrollment is limited and is by application.

COSTS

No tuition is charged. Housing and meals will be provided, at no cost to 
participants, at St. John's College in Santa Fe, NM. Housing will be in 
single dormitory rooms with shared bathrooms. Some travel funding is 
available.
