             18TH INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL OF
		     BRAIN RESEARCH


                THE SELF-ORGANIZING BRAIN:

	 FROM GROWTH CONE TO FUNCTIONAL NETWORKS



	           August 23-27, 1993
	       Amsterdam, The Netherlands
		       
	  Organized by The Netherlands Institute
	           for Brain Research
		   
		 under the auspices of the
        Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences and
             the Amsterdam Neuroscience Network
			   

In August 1993, the traditional bi-annual Summer School of Brain Research
will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The Summer School will
feature tutorial lectures about up-to-date experimental and mathematical
research on self-organization in neurons and networks, structure-function
relations and their role in the development and functional adaptation of
the brain. These themes will be explored at different levels of organization
in the brain: growth cones, neurons, networks and interrelated networks.

Participation is open for all researchers interested in the subject, and
participants are invited to present their work in poster sessions.
