This is the fourth annual Winter School sponsored by the U.S. Office of Naval Research as part of its UCSD/ Chicago MURI program in Dynamics of Multifunction Brain Networks.

This year's School presents a series of pedagogical and research oriented talks on the behavioral, neurobiological, and computational principles that underlie sequence and syntactic processes in human and non-human animals. It includes a series of educational presentations and a poster session.

The School is intended for all researchers, including advanced graduate students, interested in the general area of understanding functional nervous systems. Active participation during the School's lectures is strongly encouraged. All attendees are invited to submit abstracts for poster presentations. Selected contributed posters will be highlighted in an oral session.

Registration is required for attendance, but there is no fee for attending. A limited number of travel awards are available for exceptionally qualified graduate students and postdocs, who should apply to and have their supervisor send a letter of reference to muri.winter.school at gmail.com<mailto:muri.winter.school at gmail.com>. Please visit us online to register<http://goo.gl/forms/9vvf6jTjpx> and for details regarding the schedule and poster abstract submission:
