SYMPOSIUM ANNOUNCEMENT


***********************************************************
Language and Neurons -Theoretical Approaches
*

*The Leslie and Susan Gonda Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center
Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel
June 23-25, 2008*
***********************************************************

The aim of this symposium is to analyze hypothetical neural networks 
that can process and produce language, and that can be evaluated by 
criteria of both physiological and linguistic plausibility.  The 
symposium will address a central question of neural processing: how can 
neural circuits model rule-based systems, implementing processes that 
involve hierarchical, partly recursive, composition of primitives.  The 
symposium will consist of invited presentations, discussion sessions and 
open poster sessions.
