Dear all,
It is our pleasure to announce the workshop "Neuronal Circuits in Motor
Behavior" (NCMB) that will take place at OIST, Okinawa, February 18 - 20th,

Among the numerous functions performed by the brain, creating precise,
efficient movements is the most fundamental one without which no behavior
could be expressed. The importance of motor control is accentuated by the
fact that multiple distinct brain systems are involved in it, and thus
understanding the neuronal codes leading to the skilled animal or human
movements critically depends on researching the systems in a synergistic

The workshop brings together established scientists and rising leaders from
computational, systemic neuroscience and behavioural fields, to explore and
portray the various aspects and constraints of animal movement and the
neuronal circuits underlying their execution. The three days will comprise
of talks, poster presentations as well as more free-form discussion
sessions aiming to foster collaboration.

We encourage applications from students, post docs and faculty across any
related fields, and *will cover travel and accommodation *for 30 accepted
attendees, based on the background and motivation statements.
More information, including application webform, can be found at
https://groups.oist.jp/ncmb. *Note:* application deadline has been extended
to November 15th, 2019.

Best wishes,
Marylka Yoe Uusisaari
& NCMB organizers
