Announcement : Workshop Cortical codes

Organized by Sacha van Albada and the EITN  on February 5th and 6th, at 
the EITN Paris.

Programme and registration: https://eitnconf-050218.sciencesconf.org/

The cerebral cortex plays a key role in high-level brain functions 
including sensory processing, memory, attention, planning, and the 
internal modeling of the external world. To make sense of the wealth of 
experimental data available on cortical anatomy and physiology, and the 
relation of its activity to behavior, theoretical approaches are 
essential. A variety of tools are used for this purpose: bottom-up 
modeling starting from biological knowledge, top-down including 
normative approaches, investigations of the coding properties at the 
single-neuron and neuronal population levels, analytical work and 
simulations, and comparisons between healthy and disease conditions. 
This workshop brings together a cross-section of these theoretical 
approaches toward unraveling the mechanisms used by the cerebral cortex 
for achieving its functionality, with the goal of facilitating mutual 
fertilization between the various approaches.
