A final reminder for registration for the 2-day workshop on "Integrated Systems Neuroscience", at the University of Manchester, March 23-24th 2015. (Organisers:  Mark Humphries & Rasmus Petersen)

Registration deadline is Friday, February 27th.
Register here: http://www.isn2015.ls.manchester.ac.uk/registration/
We have a maximum capacity of 200, so please do register in good time.

The programme begins at 12:45 on March 23rd, and ends at 16:45 on March 24th, allowing ample time for travel to and from Manchester, respectively. Numerous inexpensive hotels are located within walking distance of the venue - some suggestions are here: http://www.isn2015.ls.manchester.ac.uk/location/

The goal of this workshop is to showcase the state-of-the-art in integrated systems and computational approaches to key neural circuits. Each session of the programme will comprise a pair of talks presenting complementary experimental and computational work on the same circuit theme.

A poster session with wine reception will be held on the first evening. Forty-one posters have been accepted, covering a rich mixture of experimental data and computational approaches; the draft abstract booklet is here:  http://www.isn2015.ls.manchester.ac.uk/programme/

Speakers and their themes include:
Peter Dayan (Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit) & Alex Thiele  (University of Newcastle) - Attentional circuits
Daniel O'Connor (John Hopkins University) & Srdjan Ostojic (Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris) - Functional cortical networks
Peter Magill (MRC Anatomical Neuropharmacology Unit) & Rafal Bogacz (Oxford) - Basal ganglia
Michael Orger (Champalimaud Institute, Lisbon) & Gasper Tkacik (IST Austria) - Large-scale dynamics
Matteo Carandini (UCL) & Ken Harris (UCL) - Cortical circuits

The MRC's Programme Manager for the Neuroscience and Mental Health Board (Emily Gale) will be attending both days, and will be discussing the MRC's role in this area at the end of the second day.
