I would like to bring to your attention the *NeuroBridges 2019
Computational Neuroscience School*.
NeuroBridges <https://www.facebook.com/NeuroBridges/>is a one-of-a-kind
series of scientific meetings in brain research, which brings together
Mediterranean and Middle Eastern scientists, in order to promote
international scientific cooperation in system and computational
neuroscience. A major goal of this school is to serve as a bridge
between experimental and theoretical neuroscientists, addressing
system-level questions. This year the school will primarily focus on the
neural basis and computational principles underlying sensory- motor
tasks, in which the agent chooses from a small number of actions based
on sensory and operant cues.
*The forthcoming NeuroBridges 2019* will be a ten-day summer school.
Students will attend lectures delivered by a group of leading
neuroscientists, experimentalists as well as theoreticians, which will
address the fundamental questions in the field of decision making. In
addition to the lectures, the students will work in groups on small
The school is intended for graduate students and postdocs, primarily
(but not only) from the Middle East and the Mediterranean region either
working in their home countries or abroad. We will consider applicants
with some background in related fields in neuroscience or cognitive
Through the online application system, you will be asked to provide
personal details, academic background, a motivation letter that should
