Dear colleagues,

Please find below an announcement about the fourth edition of the
Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School (TENSS). We would
be very grateful if you could forward this announcement to potentially
interested people.

Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School (TENSS)
June 1-19, 2015. The Pike Lake, Transylvania, Romania
www.tenss.ro

TENSS will concentrate top-level international expertise to teach a
dozen students techniques and concepts in experimental systems
neuroscience. We will focus on modern optical and electrophysiological
methods to study the connectivity and function of neuronal circuits.
The course is designed to be intensive and highly interactive, including
both lab sessions and theoretical lectures. Coursework will take place
in a land of myth and legend, beyond large forests (Transylvania), on
the shores of a picturesque natural reserve called Pike Lake.

Applications are welcome from interested (and interesting) graduate
students and postdocs. Please note that the registration fee has been
reduced and there is a significant number of full and half waivers
available for supporting our applicants.
