*Computational modelling: from neurons to systems and behaviour
3rd NAMASEN Training Workshop, Sheffield, UK
11-13 September 2013
NAMASEN (http://www.namasen.net/) is a multi-disciplinary Initial Training
Network (ITN) funded under the EU FP7 Marie Curie Actions. Its 3rd
workshop, hosted by the University of Sheffield, UK, is open to PhD
students and researchers and will focus on theory and models
in Neuroscience.

The aim of the workshop is to provide a view of current computational and
theoretical models that can be employed to tackle key biological questions
such as neural plasticity and its role in memory formation, dendritic and
neural computation, and reinforcement learning and its role in
decision-making and shaping behaviour.
