Dynamics of the brain: temporal aspects of computation, 9-12 June 2019

The Lundbeck Foundation has 20 free seats per conference.

Apply by sending an e-mail to with name, title, institution and age.

Deadline is March 14, 2019

To be considered, the applicant must be based in Denmark, below 40 years, bring an abstract and participate in the entire meeting.

It will be first come, first serve and we will inform the applicants after the deadline by mail whether they have received a free seat or not. The list of applicants will be forwarded to the FENS organizers.

The applicants must then register themselves and enclose their abstract using online application portal to FENS Brain conference

9-12 June 2019: Rungstedgaard, North of Copenhagen, Denmark

The brain is an extraordinarily complex dynamical system whose critical operations run over timescales ranging from the sub-millisecond (e.g., auditory perception), to the circadian (e.g., sleep and homeostatic phenomena), to weeks and years (e.g., learning and memory). Brain circuits express collective properties that can be detected macroscopically, such as traveling waves or oscillations, but recent developments also reveal, through large scale recordings of neuron populations, smaller-scale spatiotemporal phenomena such as transient dynamics (spatio-temporal multi-neuronal activation patterns in response to odours, in preparation for action, in “replay" during sleep). Those dynamics suggest strong constraints on the orchestration of activity in brain circuits. This conference will explore experimental and theoretical approaches to understand the underpinnings of such dynamics and their relevance for computation in the brain.
