10th Tamagawa-Riken Dynamic Brain Forum-DBF'07

5-9 March 2007
Hakuba Tokyu Hotel in Hakuba Village, Nagano Prefecture, Japan

Conference Framework:
The 10th Tamagawa-Riken Dynamic Brain Forum (DBF'07) will be held on  
March 5-9, 2007 at Hakuba Tokyu Hotel,
URL: http://www.tokyuhotel.co.jp/en/TR/TR_HAKUB/index.html in Hakuba  
Village, Nagano Prefecture, Japan. The Dynamic Brain Forum (DBF) is  
an annual international forum organized by the Tamagawa University  
Brain Science Research Center.  In 2007, the DBF will be co-sponsored  
by Riken Brain Institute, Integrative Brain Research Project,  
Japanese Neural Network Society, Aihara Complexity Modelling Project  
and by the 21st Century COE Programs in Tamagawa University, Kyushu  
Institute of Technology and Hokkaido University.

The theme of DBF'07 is Cortical Dynamics: Physiology, Theory and  
Applications. The forum is organized in several sessions focused on  
different aspects of the theme, with lectures in each session  
followed by a thematic discussion.  In addition, there will be poster  
presentations on newest results by the discussants and participants.   
Posters will be up during first two days of meeting, allowing  
comprehensive discussions by participants.

Preceding the forum, there also be two full days of Tutorial  
Programs, primarily oriented toward young researchers and Ph.D.  
students interested in the theory and applications of various kinds  
of dynamic brain function.  Tutorial presenters and topics will include,
Dr. S. Amari: Mathematical Theories of Dynamics of Neural Information  
Dr. I. Tsuda: Chaotic dynamics reality in brain dynamics,
Dr. K. Doya: Neural implementation of reinforcement learning,
Dr. W. Freeman: Recent advances in high-resolution analysis of EEG  
and MEG,
Dr. A. Aertsen:  Cortical Network Dynamics - Precision in a Noisy  
Environment ?
Dr. G. L. Gerstein: Coding dynamics- (a) repeating firing patterns,  
(b) firing irregularity,
Dr. M. Abeles: Brain structure and neural-network architecture,
