Applications are open for the Methods in Computational Neuroscience 
course at the Marine Biology Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA.  The course 
will run from July 29 to August 26, 2014, and the online application 
form can be found at: 
http://ws2.mbl.edu/studentapp/studentapp.asp?CourseID=MCN. The course 
application deadline is March 5.

The course covers a range of topics in computational neuroscience 
including neuronal biophysics, neural coding & information processing, 
circuit dynamics, learning & memory, motor control, and cognitive 
processing & disease.  In addition, numerous tutorials and problem sets 
will cover a broad range of computational and mathematical modeling 
methods.  The course strongly emphasizes the collaboration between 
theory and experiment in solving neuroscience problems, and lectures 
will be given by a mixture of theorists and experimentalists.  The final 
weeks of the course are primarily reserved for development and work on 
projects that students design in collaboration with the resident 
faculty. Further information can be found on the MCN website:
