*Second Annual Computational Sensory-Motor Neuroscience Summer School 
(CoSMo 2012)*
Northwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA
August 5-19, 2012

We want to invite you to join us for the second annual Computational 
Sensory-Motor Neuroscience Summer School. The course is about 
experimental, computational and medical aspects of movement science with 
a focus on data/model sharing. Covered topics include decision making, 
brain-machine interfaces, cue combination, sensory-motor transformations 
and learning.

An important focus is on doing research as opposed to just hearing about 
it. Each teaching module will take up two days with morning sessions 
involving lectures. Afternoon sessions involve hands-on Matlab 
programming, simulation and data-analysis sessions.

The course is aimed at student and post-doctoral fellows from diverse 
backgrounds including Life Sciences, Psychology, Computer Science, 
Mathematics and Engineering. Basic knowledge in calculus, linear algebra 
and Matlab is expected. Enrollment will be limited to 40 trainees.

For more information and to apply, please go to

Further information will become available during the next month.

The school is co-organized by Drs Gunnar Blohm and Konrad Körding, with 
contributions from the Canadian Action and Perception Network (CAPnet), 
the Queen's University Centre for Neuroscience Studies (Kingston, ON, 
Canada) and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (USA). It receives 
funding from the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of 
Canada (NSERC) via an NSERC-CREATE training grant on "Computational 
Approaches to Sensorimotor Transformations for the Control of Actions", 
from and from the National Science Foundation (NSF, USA).
