**********************************************************
Greetings!
We are currently seeking applications for a Summer Vision Course: “Vision: A platform for linking circuits, perception and behavior”
Hosted by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
June 15 - 29, 2017
Application deadline: March 31, 2017
Course co-directed and organized by Andrew Huberman, Farran Briggs, and Onkar Dhande.
We have an amazing lineup of speakers for the 2017 course to add to an already terrific history of this course.
Information about the course, including speaker list, schedule, and application instructions, is available on the course website:
https://meetings.cshl.edu/courses.aspx?course=C-VISION&year=17
Please note that actual costs per student will be offset by funds from NEI and additional sponsors. Course registration scholarships are available for US and international student attendees.
Please forward this email to students and postdocs who may be interested in the course.
Thank you!
Farran, Andy, and Onkar
Course description (from website):
The purpose of this course is to bring together students and faculty for in depth and high level discussions of modern approaches for probing how specific cell types and circuits give rise to defined categories of perception and action. It is also designed to address novel strategies aimed at overcoming diseases that compromise sensory function.
The visual system is the most widely studied sensory modality. Recently, three major shifts have occurred in the field of neuroscience. First, owing to the large array of genetic techniques available in mice and the relative ease of imaging and recording from the cortex of small rodents, the mouse visual system has become a premiere venue for attacking the fundamental unresolved question of how specific cells and circuits relate to visual performance at the receptive field and whole-animal level. Second, genetic and viral methods have evolved to the point where neurophysiologists can directly probe the role of defined circuits in species such as macaque monkeys, thus bridging the mechanism-cognition gap. Third, the field of visual neuroscience is rapidly paving the way for widespread clinical application of stem cell, gene therapy and prosthetic devices to restore sensory function in humans.
The time is ripe to build on the classic paradigms and discoveries of visual system structure, function and disease, in order to achieve a deep, mechanistic understanding of how receptive fields are organized and filter sensory information, how that information is handled at progressively higher levels of neural processing, and how different circuits can induce defined categories of percepts and behaviors in the healthy and diseased brain.
