Columbia Workshop on Brain Circuits, Memory and Computation

BCMC 2015 <http://www.bionet.ee.columbia.edu/workshops/bcmc/2015>
Monday and Tuesday, March 16-17, 2015
Center for Neural Engineering and Computation <http://www.cnec.columbia.edu/>
Columbia University, New York, NY 10027

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in developing executable models of neural computation/processing of the brain of model organisms. Of interest are models of computation that consist of elementary units of processing using brain circuits and memory elements. Elementary units of computation/processing include population encoding/decoding circuits with biophysically-grounded neuron models, non-linear dendritic processors for motion detection/direction selectivity, spike processing and pattern recognition neural circuits, movement control and decision-making circuits, etc. Memory units include models of spatio-temporal memory circuits, circuit models for memory access and storage, etc. A major aim of the workshop is to explore the integration of various computational sensory and control models.
