		   Computational Neuroscience: Vision
	     A Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Summer Course

			 June 16 - 29, 2006

Computational modeling and simulation have produced important advances
in our understanding of neural processing.  This intensive summer course
focuses on areas of visual science in which interactions among
psychophysics, neurophysiology, and computation have been especially
fruitful.  The course combines lectures with hands-on problem solving
using the MatLab programming environment in a computer laboratory.
Lectures will be given by the course organizers, and by invited
lecturers including: Larry Abbott (Columbia U), David Brainard (U
Pennsylvania), Matteo Carandini (Smith-Kettlewell Eye Institute),
Marissa Carrasco (NYU), EJ Chichilnisky (Salk Institute), Yang Dan (UC
Berkeley), Jack Gallant (UC Berkeley), Wilson Geisler (UT Austin), David
Heeger (NYU), Nancy Kanwisher (MIT), Michael Lewicki (Carnegie Mellon),
Tony Movshon (NYU), Michael Platt (Duke U), Pamela Reinagel (UCSD),
Dario Ringach (UCLA), Jonathan Victor (Cornell U)
