Model-based Neuroscience Summer School

The University of Amsterdam will host the fourth Summer School in Model-Based Neuroscience

Dates: July 31 - August 4, 2017
Location: Amsterdam

The school will provide students with hands-on experience in both cognitive modeling using diffusion and accumulator models and cognitive neuroscience methods. In addition, the program includes various lectures on model-based decision neuroscience both in humans and non-human primates.

Costs: € 400 (early bird) or € 500 (on site; depending on availability of spots)
Application: You can apply here

Immediately following the summer school is the 13th International Conference for Cognitive Neuroscience, also in Amsterdam:

Birte Forstmann (University of Amsterdam)
Guy Hawkins (University of Amsterdam)

Andrew Heathcote (University of Tasmania)
Gilles de Hollander (University of Amsterdam)
Dora Matzke (University of Amsterdam)
Uta Noppeney (University of Birmingham)
Brandon Turner (Ohio State University)
Leendert van Maanen (University of Amsterdam)

The summer school is supported by the William K. and Katherine W. Estes Fund for Advanced Training in Mathematical and Computational Modeling for Psychological Science and the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience.

This summer school was initially conceived to accompany the book
Forstmann, B.U. & Wagenmaker, E.-J. (Eds.) An introduction to model-based cognitive neuroscience. Springer. Although the lecturers partly differ, the topics covered in the summer school roughly follow the first chapters of this book.
