The Computational and Cognitive Neurobiology Summer School is the first 
course offered at the new CSHL-Asia, China. The objective of this course 
is to train in Computational Neuroscience talented students and postdocs 
from Asia and elsewhere in the World, including those with quantitative 
backgrounds (in Physics, Mathematics and Engineering). The lectures will 
introduce the basic concepts and methods, as well as cutting-edge 
research, in Computational and Systems/Cognitive Neurosciences. Modeling 
will be taught at multiple levels, ranging from subcellular processes, 
single neuron computation, to microcircuits and large-scale systems. An 
emphasis will be placed on the theory and neural mechanisms of higher 
cognitive functions such as perception, motor control, learning, working 
memory, selective attention, decision-making and executive functions. 
Matlab-based programming labs coordinated with the lectures will provide 
practical training in important computational methods.

Invited lecturers include:
Matthew Botvinick, Princeton University
Anne Churchland, CSHL
Bob Desimone, MIT
Michael Hausser, Uinversity College London
Markus Meister, Harvard
Mu-ming Poo, UC Berkeley and Institute of Neuroscience, Shanghai
David Redish, U Minnesota
Philip Sabes, University of California at San Francisco
Haim Sompolinsky, Hebrew University/Harvard University
Doris Tsao, Caltech
Misha Tsodyks, Weizmann Institute, Israel
