Register Early for Pre-Meeting Workshops
Be sure to factor in pre-meeting workshop opportunities on Friday, November 8, for professional development when making your plans to attend Neuroscience 2013 in San Diego. Spaces are still available for Short Course 2 "The Science of Large Data Sets: Spikes, Fields, and Voxels."
Short Course 2: "The Science of Large Data Sets: Spikes, Fields, and Voxels," will be held from 8:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. in rooms 6CF, and will provide an overview of classic and modern data analysis methods, covering general principles of signal processing and statistical inference methods.
Another short course — "Chemo and Optogenetics: Light and Chemical Control of Neuronal Circuits" — is already sold out. This short course will discuss advantages of and comparisons between the two innovative technologies.
The Neurobiology of Disease Workshop "Human Brain Disorders in a Dish: Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Models of Disease," is also sold out. Instructors will explore unanswered questions related to induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease modeling, and aims to enhance understanding for investigators new to the field.
Registration is currently open and required for short course 2. Registration can be completed in the registration resource center. If you've already registered for Neuroscience 2013, visit the registration resource center and select "add additional items" within your account.
