The First International Conference on Mathematical NeuroScience (ICMNS) will be held at the Congress Center in Juan-les-Pins, on the French Riviera on June 8-10, 2015.
The goal of this conference is to bring together theoretical neuroscientists and mathematicians interested in using mathematical concepts and methods for solving problems posed by neuroscience.
It is motivated by the idea that many outstanding questions concerning the functioning/dysfunctioning of brains at multiple spatial and temporal scales require the use of a wide range of mathematical tools, including, but not restricted to, functional analysis, dynamical systems theory, bifurcation theory, probability and statistics, stochastic calculus, geometry, information theory, and numerical analysis. The conference is also aimed to illustrate that neuroscience is …
Neural Fields: Theory and Applications
Written by leading scientists in the field
Includes contributions from two of the founding-fathers of neural field theory: Shun-ichi Amari and Jack Cowan
The first comprehensive collection of results in the research area of neural field theory
We are pleased to announce that three renowned scientists in the field of Mathematical Neuroscience have accepted to join the Editorial Board of the JMN: Sue Ann Campbell from the University of Waterloo, Canada, Wilhelm Stannat from the Technische Universität, Berlin, Germany, and Stephan A Van Gils from the Universiteit Twente, Netherlands. We thank the four members of the Editorial Board, Romain Brette, Wulfram Gerstner, Vincent Hakim, and Hinke Osinga, who decided to step down from the Board, for their efforts in promoting the Journal.
International Workshop on Neurodynamics, Castro-Urdiales, Spain, July 14 – 17, 2014.
The aim of this workshop is to present an overview of successful achievements in this rapidly developing collaborative field by putting together different types of applications of nonlinear dynamics (geometrical tools in dynamical systems, numerical methods, computational schemes, dynamical measures, …) to different problems in neuroscience (mononeuronal dynamics, network activity, cognitive problems, …). Registration deadline is 31st March 2014.
3rd International Conference on Neural Field Theory
University of Reading, June 16 – 18, 2014
Organised by Ingo Bojak, Stephen Coombes, Peter beim Graben, Bashar Hasan, Roland Potthast, Etienne Roesch, Douglas Saddy and Kelly Sloan
Neural Mass Modelling and Neural Field Theory is a growing and very active area of research with important applications in medicine and technology. Activities range from the simulation of neural populations to the analysis of neural field equations, from neural modelling of cognitive and psychological processes to controlling artificial devices. The connection between these models and measurement data, including large-scale data assimilation tasks, is of growing interest to many researchers.
The community includes researchers from medicine, psychology, physics, mathematics and engineering. The International Conferences on Neural Field Theory at the University of Reading contribute to the further development …
Applications are invited for the post of ‘Marie Curie Actions Experienced Researcher’ to work with Professor Stephen Coombes and Dr Noah Russell on a Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded project in Mathematical Neuroscience to underpin work at Nottingham, United Kingdom on Synthetic Cognition.
This full-time post is available from the 3 September 2012 or as soon as possible thereafter and will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of 24 months.
