2018 Summer School in Computational Sensory-Motor Neuroscience
(CoSMo 2018)


The school is organized by Drs Gunnar Blohm, Paul Schrater and Konrad Körding, the Canadian Action and Perception Network (CAPnet), the Queen's University Centre for Neuroscience Studies (Kingston, ON, Canada), the Psychology Department of University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, USA) and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (USA). It receives funding from the NIH through an R25 grant within the Brain Initiative and matching funds from the Brain Canada Foundation.


campusThe organizing committee of this summer school is composed of sensory-motor experts from the Northwestern University Chicago, University of Western Ontario, York University, McGill University, University of Montreal, Queen's University, University of Minnesota 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 University of Minnesota and the Queen's University Centre for Neuroscience Studies for administrative support and for providing the lecture halls, affordable housing and computer laboratories.
