Our first summer school was held on 30/08/2017 to 01/09/2017 and was a success; we hope to make this an annual event and will post details. Below is the advert for last year.

The 1st International Neural Dynamics Summer School 2017

Experience experimental and computational neuroscience research

30/08/2017 – 01/09/2017 Bristol University, UK

We are offering twelve fully funded positions on the Wellcome Trust sponsored summer school for training and research experience in neural dynamics (TRENDs).

The training and research in neural dynamics summer school is an exciting Wellcome Trust funded course held at the University of Bristol. The aim is to introduce young scientists to experimental and computational techniques used in neuroscience research. The summer school will be a three-day course made up of a series of seminars and lab visits where successful candidates will get first hand experience of electrophysiological recordings (bothin vitro and in vivo), EEG recordings, brain imaging, optogenetics, data analysis workshops and practical classes on learning to code in Python. No prior experience is necessary, but a keen interest is essential!

We welcome applications from science undergraduates from a wide range of backgrounds.

For successful applicants all costs to attend the course, including travel expenses within the UK, accommodation and food will be
covered. Overseas travel expenses will be considered on a case by case basis.

Deadline 29th May, 2017
