Main theme: The goal of this workshop is to offer an opportunity for neuroscientists with various backgrounds to interact and exchange ideas. Specifically, we encourage participation of neuroscientists who are interested in understanding the neural systems at the perceptual and behavioural level and who try to combine multiple methodologies, such as electrophysiology, imaging, advanced signal processing and computational modelling.
