*ADRIATICA2019 Summer School*

*Body, senses and neural oscillations: an integrated approach to human 
perception and behaviour*


*June 3^rd – 8^th , 2019*

*Pescara, Italy*


We invite applicants to attend the summer school on “/Body, senses and 
neural oscillations: an integrated approach to human perception and 
behaviour//”/, a joint initiative of the Institute for Advanced 
Biomedical Technologies (ITAB), University “G. d'Annunzio" of 
Chieti-Pescara and the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC), 
University of Trento.

The Summer School will take place in Pescara, Italy, at a wonderful 
four-star hotel by the Adriatic Sea, from June 3^rd to 8^th 2019.


The school will address, in a multi-scale approach, the interaction 
between the body and the neural dynamics that support human perception 
and behaviour. More specifically, we will cover the following topics:

·how the brain integrates information from the body and the environment, 
with focus on the synchronization of neural oscillations locally and at 

·how neural oscillations provide a temporal code for multisensory 
information processing;

·how brain-body information transfer can be modelled and measured.

The school is structured as a study retreat and the programme will give 
the students the opportunity to:

·debate with world-leading experts from different fields: experimental 
psychology, cognitive neuroscience, neurophysiology, physics and neural 

·work on a “mock” research project under the supervision of the same 

·learn a key practical challenge in this area on how collecting data 
from different sources and combine the information in a coherent way 
(data fusion);

·discuss about how following an open data sharing-oriented standard for 
dataset representation is a way to both properly integrate diverse 
pieces of information and collate contributions from different domains.
