VII Summer School “Achievements and Applications of Contemporary Informatics, Mathematics and Physics”
The stream “Neuroscience” introduces students, PhD students and young scientists to Neuroscience field in general and Computational Neuroscience one in particular from synaptic transmission up to neuro- & brain- computer interface, including single neuron level, small neural circuits, network and neural populations as well as an overview of different structures and various functions of the brain.
Lectures and workshops will be presented by prominent scientists from all over the world

The stream is positioned as an ‘introduction to’, thus it is the best opportunity for young scientists to learn about Neuroscience and Computational Neuroscience, take overview of recent history of these fields from the ‘first hands’ as well as to be introduced to the new trends such as Computational Neuropharmacology, Computational Psychiatry and Computational Social Science. The stream is oriented to ordinary audience with the background in natural sciences.
