This year the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour is 
organizing the


    Summer school on "Brain Networks and Neuronal Communication"

*Sunday 25 August - Friday 30 August 2013*

One week of intensive study on brain networks spanning communication 
between single neurons to large scale network interactions. National and 
international faculty, with expertise in theoretical neuroscience, 
animal electrophysiology and human brain imaging will train students on 
how to build bridges between the various levels of brain functioning. 
This school will promote vertical integration, promoting new ways of 
conceptualizing neuronal communication and brain connectivity. Faculty 
lectures, journal clubs, hands-on computer exercises and demos will 
guide the daily program. The evenings will be reserved for the students 
developing novel research proposals and social activities.*
*

*The school*is directed at national and international graduate students 
(advanced MSc & PhD students; total number of 30) who wish to develop an 
integrated perspective on brain networks and neuronal communication; an 
important component of neuroscience. Students are requested to prepare 
for the school by reading a number of relevant [bw] research papers. A 
reading list will be send prior to the meeting. The school takes place 
at Conference Center "De Poort <http://www.depoort.org>" in Groesbeek 
(NL), which is nicely situated in the woods around Nijmegen, The 
Netherlands.

*Topics include**
*Experimental techniques, advances data analysis, computational modeling 
and computer labs. The program can be found here
