We seek a highly motivated person with expertise in neuroengineering, neural modelling, and control theory. The primary aim of this project is to devise and validate mathematical models of neural circuits and to developed closed-loop control algorithms for those circuits. In particular, the project will use experimental observations to derive and test transfer functions of afferent and efferent nerve activity for closed- loop control of inflammatory bowel disease.  The mathematical modelling objective will run alongside physiological experiments to derive the transfer functions that constitute the most important aspects of the system.  Continue reading

SCiNDU: SYSTEMS AND COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE DOWN UNDER

qbi.uq.edu.au/scindu
December 15-17th, 2015, Queensland Brain Institute, The University of Queensland, Brisbane.
Deadline for abstracts and early registration is Oct 16th 2015.

This conference will bring together international leaders in understanding the computational principles underlying how neural circuits decode sensory information, make decisions, and learn from experience. Abstract submissions for poster presentation are welcome. Some abstracts will be selected for short talks.
