BrainModes 2012: Large-scale models of the brainDecember 3-4, 2012, QIMR, Brisbane
BrainModes is an annual meeting which seeks to explore innovative means of understanding complex brain activity and multimodal neuroscience data sets. The central motif is that of 'modes', that is, understanding how complex brain activity is organized around low dimensional manifolds. The meeting fosters informal discussion of brain modelling and multivariate data analysis (EEG, MEG, fMRI, etc). Previous meetings have been held in Berlin, Amsterdam, Bristol, Copenhagen and Marseilles.
The focus of this year's meeting will be on computational models of large-scale brain activity, falling into the following themes:
Theoretical advances in large-scale brain models
Simulation platforms for brain models
Model inversion, parameter estimation and model-driven data fusion
Large-scale models of brain pathology
Brain networks, complexity and dynamics
Confirmed overseas speakers are Viktor Jirsa (Marseilles), Petra Ritter (Berlin), John Terry (Exeter), Andreas Daffertshofer (Amsterdam) and Carlo Laing (New Zealand).
Organised by Tjeerd Boonstra (UNSW) and Michael Breakspear (QIMR).
Registration is $120 per person for both days and includes morning and afternoon coffee breaks. A special rate of $80 is available for students.
