Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to call your attention to a workshop, "Coherent
Behavior in Neuronal Networks," that we have organized, to be held at
the Hotel Delta in Mallorca, Spain on October 17-20, 2007.  The
scientific themes of the meeting include:

-- the possible roles of globally coherent rhythms in the coordination
of distributed processing,
-- the possible roles of coherence in stimulus discrimination,
-- the interplay of coherence of neuronal network activity with
Hebbian plasticity, and
-- the mechanisms and functional implications of repeated spiking
sequences.

Additionally, one of the goals of the meeting is to promote the
development and continuation of interdisciplinary collaborations in
these areas, as well as the exchange of ideas between participants
from a variety of backgrounds and career stages.

More information about the meeting, including a list of speakers, is
available at

The meeting will include a poster session, and funds are available to
support student and postdoc travel.  If you or someone from your group
is interested in attending and presenting a poster, as we hope you
will be, then please complete an application form, available at the
above website.  Space is limited, so we encourage early applications.

PLEASE NOTE:  The deadline for applications for travel funding is
July 31, 2007.  We will admit applicants on a rolling basis.  Once
you are notified of your acceptance, you will be asked to fill out a
registration form online.

Thanks for your attention,
Kresimir Josic (josic at math.uh.edu)
