WORKSHOP - Friday Sept 28th, 2018
INSERM U1208, Bron/Lyon, France

Latest Advances in Understanding Complex Spatial Navigation in Animals, Computational Models and Neuro-inspired Robots

The goal of this one-day workshop is to discuss the latest advances in understanding the neural mechanisms of complex spatial navigation using experimental studies in Animals, Computational Neuroscience and Neuro-robotics. The format of the workshop will be 30 minute presentations giving emphasis on studies that relate at least 2 of the 3 techniques (Animals, Computational Neuroscience and Neuro-robotics). The succinct presentation format will allow for ample time for discussion of current and future advances in the area, and collaboration opportunities.

Registration is free but required. The workshop will be limited to 30 people.
