Connectome Workbench | Brain networks at micro- and macro-scales
When11-12th September 2015
WhereSainsbury Laboratory/University Centre, University of Cambridge
We are pleased to announce the Connectome Workbench | Brain networks at micro- and macro-scales to be held on 11-12th September 2015 at the University of Cambridge, UK. The Connectome Workbench brings together researchers from multidisciplinary backgrounds and aims at providing an exciting series of talks on the first day, and in-depth discussions and workshops on day 2. Lectures will focus on the complex scaling relationships of neuronal networks and potential ways to bridge the analysis of brain networks across scales. The event will also bring into focus strategies to integrate knowledge from other research disciplines, such as genetics, bioinformatics, neuroanatomy, and computer sciences. A copy of the brochure is available here.
A Keynote lecture address by Professor Olaf Sporns (Indiana University, US) will be given on Friday, 11th September 2015 at 09:15 AM at the Sainsbury Laboratory.
