    <flushboth>The EU Advanced Course in Computational Neuroscience introduces
    students to the panoply of problems and methods of computational
    neuroscience, simultaneously addressing several levels of neural
    organisation, from subcellular processes to operations of the entire brain.</flushboth>

    <flushboth>The course consists of two complementary parts. A distinguished
    international faculty gives morning lectures on topics in experimental
    and computational neuroscience. The rest of the day is devoted to
    practical training, including learning how to use simulation software and
    how to implement a model of the system the student wishes to study on
    individual unix workstations. </flushboth>

    <flushboth>The first week of the course introduces students to essential
    neurobiological concepts and to the most important techniques in
    modelling single cells, networks and neural systems. Students learn how
    to apply software packages like GENESIS, MATLAB, NEURON, XPP,
    etc. to the solution of their problems. During the following three weeks
    the lectures will cover specific brain functions. Each week topics
    ranging from modelling single cells and subcellular processes through
    the simulation of simple circuits, large neuronal networks and system
    level models of the brain will be covered. The course ends with a
    presentation of the students' projects.</flushboth>

    <flushboth>The EU Advanced Course in Computational Neuroscience is designed for
    advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in a variety of
    disciplines, including neuroscience, physics, electrical engineering,
    computer science and psychology. Students are expected to have a basic
    background in neurobiology as well as some computer experience.
    Students of any nationality can apply. </flushboth>

    <flushboth>A total of 32 students will be accepted. About 20 students will be from
    the European Union and affiliated countries (Iceland, Israel,
    Liechtenstein and Norway plus all countries which are negotiating future
    membership with the EU). These students are supported by the European
    Commission and we specifically encourage applications from
    researchers who work in less-favoured regions of the EU and women.
    IBRO, ICTP and the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation provide support
    for participation from students of non-European countries all over the
    world, IBRO and ICTP in particular countries from the former Soviet
    Union, Africa, Asia and South America, while The Brain Science
    Foundation supports Japanese students. Students receiving support from
    the mentioned sources will receive travel grants and free full board at the
    Adriatico Guest House in Trieste. </flushboth>
