Ilya Rybak and myself will be organizing a workshop at the CNS 2011 meeting in Stockholm this year on multi-scale modeling in computational neuroscience.

For those of you potentially interested in this subject, I will be giving a talk open to the public this coming week as part of the MSM Computational Neuroscience Working Group.

The talk is open to the public over the Internet.

Jim Bower

> Thursday March 3, 2011 3:30-4:30pm ET – MSM Computational Neuroscience Working Group
> Working Group leads: Jim Bower; bower at uthscsa.edu, Ilya Rybak; rybak at drexel.edu
> Jim Bower will present: Multi-scale modeling in neuroscience: How does the cerebellum work and how will we ever know?
> ABSTRACT - Realistic computational modeling involves the exploration of biophysically and anatomically accurate models under the assumption that the nervous system's form will eventually reveal its function. Computational investigations of this type are being increasingly applied to many different neurobiological studies at levels of scale ranging from molecular, through cellular, to network and system levels. In this talk, Dr. Bower will use his laboratory's own multi-year and multi-generational modeling efforts to uncover structure/function relationships in the cerebellum. He will demonstrate how, in fact, any effort to realistically model brain function inevitably leads to modeling at multiple scales. He will also discuss the technical and practical aspects of engaging in integrated multi-scale modeling.
> Connection information will be posted on the MSM Computational Neuroscience Working Group wiki page,http://www.imagwiki.nibib.nih.gov/mediawiki/index.php?title=Computational_Neuroscience_Working_Group
> PLEASE NOTE:  Those interested in seeing Jim in person can come to the NIBIB Large Conference Room in Suite 200,http://www.nibib.nih.gov/About/VisitorInformation/Directions
