[All details about this school can be found online at The NEURON School
Initiative <http://neuronschool.uniss.it/>]

The Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Sassari is is
excited to announce the first edition of The NEURON School on Computational
Neuroscience.

This *one-week* school will introduce to the use of the simulation
environment NEURON and related software to build brain models from
experiments to their applications.

   - The school will provide basic notions on experimental methods to
   extract and process morphological and electrophysiological data targeting
   their use to build computational models of single neurons and neuronal
   networks.
   - The school will cover how these models can be constructed based on the
   principles of biological tissue growth in simulations.
   - The students will also be introduced to recent *in silico* applications
   of neuronal networks and neuromorphic hardware.


We welcome applications from all interested full graduate, PhD students,
and PostDocs in a variety of fields from biology, neurobiology and
psychology, to physics, engineering, and mathematics, and industry
professionals with a relevant background.

Applicants are expected to have a good background in their discipline,
interest in neuroscience, and some knowledge (even basic) of computer
programming.

For a quick look at the summer school description, check out this flyer
