*Fifth Annual Computational Sensory-Motor Neuroscience Summer School 
(CoSMo 2015)*
Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands
June 28 - July 11, 2015

We would like to invite you to join us for the fifth annual 
Computational Sensory-Motor Neuroscience Summer School. The course is 
about experimental, computational and medical aspects of sensory-motor 
neuroscience with a focus on active learning. Covered topics include 
multi-sensory integration, motor learning & control, computational 
methods, sensory-motor transformations and neural coding / decoding.

An important focus is on doing research as opposed to just hearing about 
it. Each teaching module will take up two days with morning lecture 
sessions. Afternoon sessions involve hands-on Matlab programming, 
simulation and data-analysis. Newly acquired computational tools can 
also be applied in 2-week evening group research projects.

The course is aimed at students and post-doctoral fellows from diverse 
backgrounds including Life Sciences, Psychology, Computer Science, 
Physics, Mathematics and Engineering. Basic knowledge in calculus, 
linear algebra and Matlab is expected. Enrollment will be limited to 40 
trainees.

*Application deadline: Mar 15, 2015*

The school is co-organized by Drs Gunnar Blohm, Paul Schrater, John van 
Opstal, Pieter Medendorp and Konrad Körding. This year, it receives 
funding from the EU FP7 Marie-Curie IDP Training Network /HealthPAC/, 
and the Perception, Action and Control research network of the Donders 
Institute at Radboud University Nijmegen.
