[Announcement of the Systems Neuroscience Spring School 2019]

Systems Neuroscience is a field of science that seeks to understand the architecture of the nervous system at multiple scales ranging from molecular level through behavioural level. SNSS2019 will provide chances to learn the frontiers of the systems neurobiology from six world's leading scientists with masteries in wide variety of subjects, including mathematical modelling, fundamental biology, and nano-technology based measurement and instrumentation techniques.

This year's theme is “Statics and Dynamics of Neural Systems", and the conference features exciting talks with particular focus on the large-scale anatomy of the brain, behavioral experiments using latest multi-electrode recording techniques, and their theoretical backgrounds. The school is particularly intended for young scientists, and there will be active discussions throughout the session. Participants are encouraged to prepare a poster presentation to introduce their research to the community.


[Date] March 10 (Sun) - 13 (Wed), 2019. The preliminary seminar at March 10 is only for students.
