Dear All,


Please find below details of the Integrative Brain Function Workshop:
Multi-modal approaches to understand brain functions, to be held in
Melbourne on Monday 30 June.


Integrative Brain Function Workshop

Multi-modal approaches to understand brain functions


The goal of this workshop is to offer an opportunity for neuroscientists
with various backgrounds to interact and exchange ideas. Specifically,
we encourage participation of neuroscientists who are interested in
understanding the neural systems at the perceptual and behavioural level
and who try to combine multiple methodologies, such as
electrophysiology, imaging, advanced signal processing and computational
modelling.

Date: Monday June 30, 2014. (from 9am)

Deadline for abstracts: June 9

Location: Monash Biomedical Imaging facility, 770 Blackburn Rd, Clayton
VIC, Australia.

Keynote speaker:

David Leopold from NIH/NIMH, USA
