Virginia Tech to host neuroscience workshop in Switzerland
Date:9/20/2013

llege London in the United Kingdom.

Workshop participants will address emerging views of how neuronal and synaptic networks in the brain assemble, process, store, and access information and how large-scale networks of interconnected neurons perform in humans and other mammals. The participants will also consider the functional architecture that underlies the brain's decision-making capacity, the neural basis of social interactions, the effects of the environment on information processing, and the consequences of a range of disorders on the function of the human brain.

Participants will share their newest discoveries in multiple sessions of several speakers each, followed by in-depth discussions to identify congruent perspectives and converging insights from multiple disciplines.

The discoveries will represent a broad array of technological and conceptual approaches, including analysis of detailed structural and functional properties of individual neurons and synaptic networks obtained with powerful electrophysiological, genetic, and optical imaging methods; functional brain imaging and behavioral studies in individuals and groups of interacting humans; and computational analysis and modeling of brain function and behavior.

Additional experts will address economics and game theory applications to human brain function and behavior in health and in disease; analysis of development, aging, and educational interventions on brain function; and the modulation of brain function acutely and over time in health and in various disorders that affect behavior, neural information processing, and decision-making.

"This workshop is taking place at a confluence of important national and international milestones in brain research in both Europe and the United States," Friedlander said. "The Blue Brain Project in Europe represents a major international coalition to support large-sca
