Dear colleagues,

*June 1-5 2015* will see the second *Model-based Neuroscience Summer 
School*, hosted at the *University of Amsterdam*.

The school will provide students with hands-on experience in both 
cognitive modeling using diffusion and accumulator models and simple 
neuroscience methods. In addition, the program includes a debate between 
the two most prominent perspectives on the model-based neuroscience of 
perceptual decision-making. These perspectives place a different primary 
focus on either behavior (Ratcliff) or neural dynamics (Logan). 
Consequently, they bring different insights to the combined research agenda.

The summer school is aimed at PhD students and early PostDocs who wish 
to combine cognitive modelling with experimental and theoretical 
neuroscience research. Students should be familiar with general 
programming concepts and state in their application which programming 
languages and software packages they typically use.

The summer school is only 100 euro, however, we ask that students make 
their own housing arrangements. Space is limited, therefore we ask that 
you provide a statement of interest. We will base selection of students 
based on the relevance of the summer school to their research.

More information about the teachers, preliminary programme, and 
application can be found at www.modelbasedneuroscience.com 

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam!
