Neuroinformatics

Applications are invited for an intensive graduate/postgraduate school in 
Neuroinformatics
at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA, from 11 to 26 August 2012.

The Neuroninformatics school (http://neufo.org/) is a two week course on
methods to manage and analyze data sets from neurophysiological and
behavioral measurements, particularly large data volumes that require
systematic tatistical and computational approaches.

The course includes lectures on fundamental mathematical methods,
established and emerging applications, and focused hands-on computer-based
sessions. Topics include point processes, e.g., spike trains, continuous
processes, e.g., behavior, ECoG, EEG, fMRI, LFP, and MEG recordings, and
methods for analyzing neuroanatomical data from light and electron microscopy.
The first week is devoted by lectures on statistical and analytical
techniques appropriate for neural data analysis. A concurrent computer
laboratory runs in the evenings to supplement the lectures. The second week
contains application-based lectures and is focused on emerging research areas.
The second week further contains a "data analysis challenge", in which teams
will analyze published data sets in the context of specific questions.
Attendance at the school is targeted broadly, from experimental
researchers to those with a theoretical or analytical orientation who work
closely ith data. A main aim of the school is to foster close working relations
between theorists and experimentalists. Researchers at all levels, from 
advanced
graduate student to working professional, may benefit from participating.

Primary faculty include: Helen Barbas (BU); Amy Barnard (Allen); Mikhail
Belkin (OSU); Uri T. Eden (BU); Moritz Helmstaedter (MPI); Matti S. Hamalainen
(MGH); Satish Iyengar (Pitt); David Kleinfeld, co-director (UCSD); Partha P.
Mitra, co-director (CSHL); Bijan Pesaran (NYU); Keith P. Purpura
(Weill-Cornell); Nicholas D. Schiff (Weill-Cornell); Andrew T. Sornborger 
(Georgia); and
Jonathan D. Victor (Weill-Cornell).
