We would like to announce the following event
Workshop on "Spike Initiation: Models & Experiments"<http://www.namasen.net/drupal/sites/CNS2015Workshop/CNS2015_Workshop_-_Spike_initiation__models_and_experiments/Workshop_@_CNS_2015,_Prague__July_22,_2015.html>
as part of the CNS2015<http://www.cnsorg.org/cns-2015-prague> programme

July 22nd, 2015, Prague, Czech Republic

The workshop gathers leading experimentalists and theoreticians to discuss a pivotal element for our quantitative understanding of neuronal excitability: the initiation of action potentials. Phenomenological, electrophysiological, and computational aspects of spike initiation will be discussed by addressing the following questions:

·      What models can quantitatively account for experimental observations?
·      How is spike initiation regulated at different time scales?
·      What is the role of the various ionic channels expressed in the axonal initial segment?
·      What is the significance of neuronal morphology and spatial distribution of channels?
·      What are the functional consequences of spike initiation properties?

The workshop is organised as a symposium of the CNS2015 conference<http://www.cnsorg.org/cns-2015-prague> (see here<http://www.cnsorg.org/cns-2015-workshops-program>).
