Dendritic integration and computation with active dendrites

European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience, 74 rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, 75012 Paris, France

Feb. 8, 2018 – Feb. 9, 2018

The workshop is aimed at putting together experiments, models and recent neuromorphic systems aiming at understanding the computational properties conferred by dendrites in neural systems.

The workshop will focus particularly on the excitable properties of dendrites and the type of computation they can implement.  The workshop will take place in central Paris, at the European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience (EITN), for two full days on February 8th - 9th.

The registration is free but mandatory due to a limited number of seats.
