CODYBS09: Complex Dynamics in Large-Scale Interacting Brain systems: Towards Physical Models of Sleep and Consciousness - Workshop and Seminar
Special focus on the neurobiology of hearing, with seven Perspectives and Reviews discussing recent advances in our understanding of how sounds are converted into neural signals, and how these processes go wrong in hearing loss in humans.
The 2009 Neuromorphic Cognition Engineering Workshop will be held from June 28 to July 18, 2009 in Telluride, CO, USA. This is an exciting three-week summer workshop where there will be lectures and discussions on systems and cognitive neuroscience (in particular sensory processing, learning and memory, motor systems and attention), practical tutorials on analog VLSI design, hands-on projects with mobile robots and neuromorphic chips, and active brainstorming sessions with special interest groups.
A forum for EU and US researchers to discuss and explore concepts and methods necessary for advancing neuromorphic systems towards a more cognitive quality of behavior.
The Fifth Conference on Mismatch Negativity (MMN) and its Clinical and Scientific Applications was held between the 4th and 7th of April, 2009 in Budapest, Hungary, co‑organised by István Winkler and István Czigler of the Institute for Psychology, Hungarian Academy of Science.
