GCC Neuroscience Symposium to be Feb. 11-12

Rice Sep 22, 2015


The Gulf Coast Consortia for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience's 13th Annual Conference will be held Feb. 11-12, 2016. The goals of this conference are to advance research and training in Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience by creating a community of researchers to serve as a focal point for the exchange of ideas, information and technology and to provide a mechanism and environment for interactions that potentially could generate novel projects of a significant scale outside of the reach of any one institution.


Keynote speakers include:  

Sheila Nirenberg, PhD, Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, Weil Medical College of Cornell University; 

Mark Goldman, PhD, Professor, Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior, UC-Davis Center for Neuroscience; 

Randall O’Reilly, PhD, Professor, Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder; and 

Catherine Carr, PhD, Professor, Biology, University of Maryland, College Park.


Organizing Committee:  Fabrizio Gabbiani, Baylor College of Medicine; Krešimir Josić, University of Houston; Xaq Pitkow, Baylor College of Medicine; and Harel Shouval, UT Health Science Center at Houston. The conference will begin with Dr. Nirenberg’s talk on Thursday, February 11, 4:00 pm. The remaining talks and poster session will be on Friday, February 12, BioScience Research Collaborative, 6500 Main.
