Neurocognitive Networks 2010
(http://www.ccs.fau.edu/~bressler/NCNC10/NCNC10.html) will take
place at Florida Atlantic University on January 29-30, 2010. The
conference will aim to increase understanding of all aspects of
neurocognitive networks.

There is growing evidence that cognitive brain function must be
understood in terms of distributed, interacting systems. Recent
advances in cognitive neuroscience have been made possible by
analysis of the large-scale brain networks underlying cognition,
or neurocognitive networks for short. The study of
neurocognitive networks has provided new and exciting insights
into brain function. Advances have come from the cooperative
work of multiple disciplines, including functional neuroimaging,
electrophysiology, network modeling, and cognitive science. An
abiding lesson is that a synthesis of experimental, analytical,
and theoretical approaches is required to understand
neurocognitive networks, since no single discipline or
methodology in itself is adequate.

The guiding principle for the conference is that progress can be
made toward understanding the neural basis of cognition by
cross-fertilization at the intersection of four contemporary
research themes: (1) neuroimaging of neurocognitive network
function; (2) electrophysiology of neurocognitive network
dynamics; (3) computational modeling of neurocognitive networks;
(4) theory of neurocognitive networks. The conference schedule
will be organized according to this scheme, with one session for
each theme.

Registration for the Neurocognitive Networks conference is open
to interested faculty and students, as well as those from the
community-at-large. Seating is limited, and advanced
registration is required for admission.

Neurocognitive Networks 2010 is sponsored by The Cognitive
Neuroscience Program of the National Science Foundation, and The
Charles E. Schmidt College of Science at FAU.
