EXPERIMENTAL AND COMPUTATIONAL COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE: TOWARDS A SYNTHESIS

A Satellite Symposium at the 2006 Annual Meeting of the Cognitive 
Neuroscience Society
Hyatt Regency Ballroom, San Francisco, April 8, 2006

Co-sponsored by the
NSF Center of Excellence for Learning in Education, Science, and 
Technology (CELEST)
<http://cns.bu.edu/CELEST>http://cns.bu.edu/CELEST
and the
International Neural Network Society(INNS)
<http://www.inns.org/>http://www.inns.org/


This symposium discusses recent experimental data about important 
topics in cognitive neuroscience, and computational cognitive 
neuroscience models aimed at explaining these and related data in a 
unified way while making new predictions that can be tested by 
multiple means.
