The Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) summer school: 
Designed to emphasize higher cognitive functions and their underlying neural circuit mechanisms, the course aims at training talented and highly motivated students and postdoctoral fellows from Asia and around the world. We welcome both applicants with quantitative backgrounds (including Physics, Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science) and those with experimental backgrounds. The lectures will introduce the basic concepts and methods, as well as cutting-edge research on higher brain functions such as decision-making, attention, learning and memory. Modeling will be taught at multiple levels, ranging from single neuron computation and microcircuits up to large-scale systems and machine-learning approaches. Python-based programming labs coordinated with the lectures will provide practical training in important computational methods.

Invited lecturers include (Lecturer, Affiliation, Country/Region):

Carlos Brody, Princeton University, USA
Bob Desimone, MIT, USA
Bard Ermentrout, University of Pittsburgh, USA
Winrich Freiwald, Rockefeller University, USA
Biyu He, New York University, USA
