About Cosyne

The annual Cosyne meeting provides an inclusive forum for the exchange
of experimental and theoretical/computational approaches to problems
in systems neuroscience.

The first Cosyne meeting, held in 2004 at Cold Spring Harbor
Laboratory, drew over 350 participants. Since 2005, the meeting has
been held in Salt Lake City, Utah. It has attracted a growing number
of participants, from nearly 400 in 2005 to almost 500 in 2008.

To encourage interdisciplinary interactions, the main meeting is
arranged in a single track. A set of invited talks are selected by the
Executive Committee, and additional talks and posters are selected by
the Program Committee, based on submitted abstracts.

Cosyne topics include but are not limited to: neural coding, natural
scene statistics, dendritic computation, neural basis of persistent
activity, nonlinear receptive field mapping, representations of time
and sequence, reward systems, decision-making, synaptic plasticity,
map formation and plasticity, population coding, attention,
computation with spiking networks.

The abstracts of the 2009 meeting will be published by Frontiers in
Systems Neuroscience. Similar to the abstracts of the Society for
Neuroscience meeting, these abstracts are citeable, but they are not
full-length proceedings and therefore do not preclude further
