Dear colleauges,

We are pleased to announce that PENS Neuroscience school

Models in Neuroscience: turning experiments into knowledge will be held in

St. Petersburg, Russia from April, 27 to May, 5 2008. The school will
emphasize the role of modeling as a knowledge
structuring tool.The lectures will describe the use of mathematical
model-based approaches to infer knowledge from
the experimental data and  statistical models used for establishing
significance of findings.  Additional goals of the
school are to bridge the gap between future cellular and cognitive
neuroscientists and to attract the students
majoring in physics and math to the field of computational neuroscience.

We welcome applications from advanced Ph.D. students and young
post-docs with interest in all fields of neuroscience
as well as students with physics/math major. A total of 30 students
will be accepted. Meals and accomodation are covered
for all accepted students, limited number of travel awards is available.

Application deadline, February, 15, 2008.

Registration fee: 100 Euro (fee can be waived for students with
advanced records)

Cellular neuroscience: biophysics of ionic channels, synaptic and
circumneuronal signal transmission, synaptic plasticity,
			 techniques of imaging and electrophysiology
Cognitive neuroscience: memory, attention, language, brain imaging ,
multi-modal integration in cognitive data analysis,
			 event-related potentials and fields
Computational neuroscience: single-neuron and neural population
modeling, dynamic causal modeling (DCM),
			 non-parametric statistical analysis of EEG/MEG data
