*7th Annual Computational Sensory-Motor Neuroscience Summer School 
(CoSMo 2017)*

University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA
July 30  - August 13, 2017

We would like to invite applications for the 7th annual Computational 
Sensory-Motor Neuroscience Summer School. The course is about 
experimental, computational and medical aspects of sensory-motor 
neuroscience with a focus on active learning. Covered topics include 
multi-sensory integration, motor learning & control (also clinical), 
computational methods, sensory-motor transformations and neural coding / 

An important focus is on doing research as opposed to just hearing about 
it. Each teaching module will take up two days, combining lectures with 
hands-on Matlab programming, simulation and data-analysis. Newly 
acquired computational tools can also be applied in 2-week evening group 
research projects.

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

*Application deadline: Apr 11, 2017*

The school is co-organized by Drs Gunnar Blohm, Paul Schrater, and 
Konrad Körding. This year, it receives funding from the NIH through a 
Brain Initiative R25 grant and from The Brain Canada Foundation.
