October 27, 2010 - Columbia University's Italian Academy is proud to  
present an all-day workshop that will bring together neuroscientists  
from theNew York area and beyond to present their research and  
methodological approach from a broad, interdisciplinary perspective.  
Scientists in the field of systems neuroscience will present and  
discuss modern techniques such as single- and multi-electrode  
recording, optical-, magnetic- and molecular-imaging, and  
optogenetically targeted neural control. The talks will explain the  
importance of these techniques and the data they generate for the  
neuroscientific enterprise. The aim of the workshop is dual: firstly,  
to foster the interaction among scientists using a variety of  
techniques and secondly, to sensitize a more general public to the  
potential and significance of the recent developments in approaching  
neuroscience and the study of the brain and behavior.

The event is sponsored by the Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in  
America at Columbia University in cooperation with the Mahoney- 
KeckCenter for Brain and Behavior Research, with additional support  
from Plexon.

The Italian Academy is located at 1161 Amsterdam Ave., between 116th and
118th Streets.
Subway line: #1 to 116th Street
