Dear All,

Sorry for the cross posting.

I am glad to communicate that the NeuroChip Laboratory of University of
Padova, Italy is organizing a School on Neurotechniques with special
emphasis on "Tools for Investigating the Function of Neural Circuits". The
school will be held from February 15 – 19, 2016 and the deadline for
application is January 20, 2016.

The following topics will be covered in the school:

1. Multi-electrode and multi-transistor arrays
2. Implantable brain probes for acute and chronic recording
3. Transcranic magnetic stimulation
4. Mixed electrophysiology, genetics and behavior approaches
5. Closed-loop electrophysiology and neuromorphic systems
6. Genetically encoded fluorecent probes
7. Signal Analysis
8. Calcium imaging
9. Neuron cultures techniques
10. In vivo electrophysiology

Thank you for your attention.

Best regards,
Mufti Mahmud, PhD

Call for participation

School on Neurotechniques 2016: The toolbox for investigating the function
of neural circuits
15-19 February 2016
NeuroChip Lab, University of Padova, Italy
Website: http://www.vassanellilab.eu/school-neurotechniques/


Investigating information processing and identifying operational rules of
brain neural circuits relies on the capability to selectively record and
stimulate multiple neurons within a network.
The toolbox of available techniques conceived to meet this need is rapidly
The CSN School on Neurotechniques 2015 will offer an overview on advanced
electrical- and light-based recording methods of neuronal excitability,
focusing on those that are most relevant for the investigation of neural
networks ‘in vitro’ and ‘in vivo’ and for application in neuroprosthetics.
Techniques derived from information theory for the analysis of neuronal
population signals will be presented and practical demonstrations of
experimental recording sessions provided.

The school targets doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers, scientists
working in the related fields. Since the school's topics are
interdisciplinary covering neurobiology, neuronal biophysics, microscopy,
and electronics, preliminary knowledge in these fields is highly
