The 6th Annual Meeting of Korean Society for Computational Neuroscience

Date: August 28 (Thursday), 2014
Place: Sungshin Women's University (Woonjung Campus), Seoul, Korea

CBRAIN 2014 Poster

Since the ultimate goals of the Korean Society for Computational Neuroscience are to understand basic principles of information processing of the brain based on theoretical approaches and computational tools and to encourage Korean neuroscientists to share insight into how brain works, the annual meeting of our society has been designed to share recent findings in the computational neuroscience and related fields among brain scientists, psychologists, neural engineers, and medical doctors. As neurobiologists and computational neuroscientists among others started talking and working together, the annual meeting of the Korean Society for Computational Neuroscience stands at the interface, where experimental neuroscience meets theoretical, computational, and integrative neuroscience, with the hope of turning large collections of experimental results into brain dynamics and principles.

This years theme of the conference is “Brain Network and Rhythms - Fundamental Studies and Clinical Applications”. The conference will begin with a keynote lecture in the morning session, and five invited talks with short research presentations will be given in the following sessions. A poster session is also run to encourage active discussions among researchers and students in the luncheon time.

This annual meeting is financially supported by APCTP. This meeting welcomes active participation of researchers and students from interdisciplinary areas in Computational/Theoretical Neuroscience, Systems Neuroscience, Neuroinformatics, Neural Engineering, and other related fields.
