SF Workshop on Brain Dynamics scheduled for May, 2002

The newly opened Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience at UCSD has organized a meeting on brain dynmaics. The meeting, titled "From Microdynamics to Macrodynamics", is intended to bring together scientists to discuss the integration of brain activity studies that have been made on different scales. Significant progress has been made over the last 50 years in studying the dynamics of the brain at the microscopic level (single-unit, single-synapse, single-molecule), but there has been less progress in understanding macroscopic brain dynamics, including the electroencephalogram (EEG), event-related potentials (ERPs), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and local field potentials (LFPs). In the proposed three-day workshop, the links between these two levels of brain dynamics will be explored by focusing on two related areas of current experimental and theoretic advances: The role of interneurons in regulating neural spike timing and in generating local field oscillations, and dynamical relationships between oscillations in different brain regions and behavior. This workshop will take place at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, located 20 miles north of San Diego, and will bring together 30 participants: physiologists and anatomists studying cortical circuits, cognitive neuroscientists studying brain dynamics and behavior via EEG and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and computational neuroscientists using neural modeling techniques to explore local and large-scale network dynamics.
