PhD course: The neural basis of brain information processing and behaviour: synapses, cells, circuits

This is course offered in collaboration with Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research; Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing; and the Graduate School of Health, Aarhus University.

How do synapses, neurons and neuronal circuits account for sensorimotor functions, behaviour and higher functions such as perception? How do the wide architectural and physiological variety of neurons and brain network embed neuronal information processing?

The speakers will highlight our current knowledge, but will also point to gaps in our understanding of brain function and indicate a wish list for future technical and conceptual developments in neuroscience.



Speakers include:

Mu-Ming Poo, Institute of Neuroscience, Shanghai

David Kleinfeld, University of California San Diego, San Diego

Greg Stuart, Australian National University, Canberra
