Imperial College / NETT Winter School on Neural Engineering 2014

This two day Winter School is the 5th training event organised by the Marie Curie Initial Training Network NETT and is run jointly with the Centre for Doctoral Training in Neurotechnology for Life and Health at Imperial College London. It will bring together international experts and younger researcher to discuss topics essential to the emergent field of Neural Engineering, including
noise in the nervous system, sensorimotor control, optical neurotechnology and single neuron computation. The style of the talks, which will include background information as well as the state of the art, will allow researchers new to the field to be up to speed on the topics.
The event will take place Thursday 8 and Friday 9 January 2015 at Imperial College, London.
