Dear all,

I would like to remind you about the

WORKSHOP "RECENT METHODS AND ANALYSES FOR LARGE-SCALE NEURONAL POPULATION RECORDINGS" | JULY 19TH-20TH IN ANTWERP @ CNS MEETING 2017
http://www.computational-neuroscience-of-sensory-systems.org/workshop-on-recent-methods-and-analyses-for-neuronal-population-recordings/

Abstract:
Understanding how assemblies of neurons encode information requires recording large populations of cells in the brain. In recent years, progress in population calcium imaging and multichannel electrophysiology opened the possibility to record from hundreds or even thousands of neurons simultaneously. While these techniques offer unprecedented chances to monitor large neural circuits, they also push for the design of new algorithms to gather and process information from such high-dimensional datasets.
The workshop "Recent methods and analyses for large-scale neuronal population recordings", which will be held on July 19th-20th in Antwerp at the CNS meeting 2017, will gather leading experimentalists and theoreticians to discuss latest computational methods and analyses used to process such large-scale neuronal population recordings, both in vivo and in vitro. Focusing on high-density electrophysiology and calcium imaging, it will review recent advances in neuroinformatics research, including spike sorting techniques and characterization of neural assemblies' spatio-temporal activity.
