*Call for applicants of the 7th International Summer School of
Neuroengineering "Massimo Grattarola"*

*Neurotechnologies and Computational Methods to Interact with the Brain*

The 7th International Summer School of Neuroengineering "Massimo
Grattarola" aims to introduce computational and technological methods to
researchers of different backgrounds (life sciences, physics, engineering)
to interact with the brain. The first two days will deal with brain
dynamics giving particular emphasis to the role of the connectivity and
computational models of the brain at different level of abstraction, as
well as hardware and software platforms to simulate such dynamics. During
the 3rd day, the recent advancements for increasing the quality of the
recordings and for delivering efficient stimulating protocols will be
discussed. Finally, the last day will provide examples of neuroengineering
paradigms for designing new neuroprostheses to interact with the brain and
their clinical applications to increase the quality of life.

A practical experimental session using high-density EEG set-up and
multi-electrode arrays for *in vitro*/*in vivo* applications is foreseen.

*Dates*: 18th-22nd June 2018

*Location*: Genova (Italy)

*Registration*: Registrations will open during the first week of March.
Participation is limited to 60 attendees (students, post-docs, …).

*Website*: www.neuroengineering.eu

*Poster session*: Students attending the school will have the opportunity
to present their results in a two-days poster session.

*Confirmed speakers*: Miguel Nicolelis (Duke University), Shimon Marom
(Technion Israel Institute of Technology), Matias Palva (Univ. Helsinki),
Andreas Hierlemann (ETH), Tim Harris (Janelia Research Campus), Lucilla de
Arcangelis (Univ. of Campania), Annalisa Bonfiglio (Univ. Cagliari), Sylvie
Renaud (Bordeaux INP), Valentina Pasquale (Italian Institute of
Technology), Michele Giugliano (Univ. Antwerp), Michele Migliore (CNR),
Silvia Casarotto (Univ. Milano), Michela Chiappalone (Italian Institute of
Technology), Stanisa Raspopovic (ETH).
