2015 Summer School in Computational Sensory-Motor Neuroscience
(CoSMo 2015)


The school is organized and funded by Drs Gunnar Blohm, Paul Schrater, John Van Opstal, Pieter Medendorp and Konrad Körding, the Canadian Action and Perception Network (CAPnet), the Queen's University Centre for Neuroscience Studies, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (USA), the EU FP7 Marie-Curie IDP Training Network HealthPAC, and the Perception, Action and Control research network of the Donders Institute at Radboud University Nijmegen.


The organizing committee of this summer school is composed of sensory-motor experts from the Northwestern University Chicago, Queen's University, University of Minnesota, Radboud University Nijmegen and Washington University (St. Louis). Our goal is to provide hands-on training in computational techniques relevant to sensory processing and the control of movement. We have designed this summer school to be unique in its kind with a strong emphasis on the link between theory, experiments and the clinics. Through this summer school, we will also promote model and data sharing. This multi-disciplinary approach reflects our research philosophy and corresponds to the ideal training environment from which we would like our own students and postdocs to benefit.


We would like to thank the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behvaiour for administrative support and for organizing all practicalities. In particular, we would like to thank Ms Judith Fontaine for her tremendous help with organizing CoSMo!
