Computational Neuroscience: Vision
A Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Summer Course

18 June - 1 July 2004

Computational modeling and simulation have produced important advances 
in our understanding of neural processing.  This intensive 2-week 
summer course focuses on areas of visual science in which interactions 
among psychophysics, neurophysiology, and computation have been 
especially fruitful.  Topics to be covered this year include: neural 
representation and coding; photon detection and the neural basis of 
color vision; pattern and texture perception; stereo and motion 
perception; oculomotor function; object/shape representation; visual 
attention and decision-making.

The course combines lectures with hands-on problem solving using the 
MatLab programming environment in a computer laboratory. Lectures will 
be given by the course organizers and by invited lecturers, including: 
Edward Adelson (MIT), David Brainard (U Pennsylvania), Matteo Carandini 
(Smith-Kettlewell Eye Institute) EJ Chichilnisky (Salk Institute), 
Kathleen Cullen (McGill U), Bruce Cummings (NIH), Jim DiCarlo (MIT), 
David Heeger (NYU), Dan Kersten (U Minnesota), Tony Movshon (NYU), Pam 
Reinagel (UCSD), Fred Rieke (U Washington), Ruth Rosenholtz (MIT), Mike 
Shadlen (U Washington), Stefan Treue (U Tuebingen), Preeti Verghese 
(Smith-Kettlewell Eye Institute).

Application deadline:  15 March 2004
