 Want to learn more about new and exciting tools for neuroscience research,
find new collaborators and discuss your latest results with a
cross-disciplinary scientific audience?

Then join us at NI2014 in Leiden, Netherlands, August 25-27! Our program
includes keynote presentations by leading computational neuroscientists and
workshops on describing synaptic dynamics, building cortical circuits, and
modelling in open source collaborative projects.

postnatal development
- Mitya Chklovskii: Can connectomics help us understand neural computation?
Insights from the fly visual system
- Daniel Choquet: A nanoscale view into the dynamic of AMPA receptor
organization in synapses
- Viktor Jirsa: The Virtual Brain: a simulator of large-scale brain network
- Michael Milham: Emerging models for biomarker identification
- Felix Schürmann: In silico neuroscience – an integrative approach


- The Neuroinformatics of neuroanatomy. Chair: Maryann Martone. Speakers:
