April 13, 2007 - Frontiers of Theoretical Neuroscience

This is to be a one-day workshop for theoretical neuroscience researchers in Southern Ontario & Quebec. Researchers will be invited to present their research, and discuss the future of the discipline in the region. Panel discussions on funding theoretical neuroscience will also take place, with representatives from Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

Participants:
