NEW COURSE Cognition and Computational Neuroscience MRes
This new Masters in Research course (MRes) is designed to provide experience of appropriate research skills, coupled with knowledge of the broader theoretical context of contemporary interdisciplinary research. For more information, click here.

January 3rd-4th 2008 London meeting of the EPS
At the January 2008 meeting of the Experimental Psychology Society (EPS), Giles Anderson presented a talk on the 'Differential time course of top-down cueing by colour and orientation in visual search'. A revised abstract is available here.

May 31st-June 2nd 2007 Computational modelling workshop, University of Birmingham, UK
The 'Closing the gap between neurophysiology and behaviour: A computational modelling approach' workshop was part of a series of published colloquia on 'Advances in cognitive neuroscience', held at the Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, University of Birmingham. The workshop brought together international researchers either using computational models, or collecting data directly relevant to models, to discuss the current state of the field, and to evaluate new directions in the interaction between models and data. For details of the program and talk abstracts, click here.

May 30th 2007 The method of computational modelling: A practical introduction
To complement the above Computational modelling workshop, this one-day satellite workshop for postgraduate students and junior postdocs provided hands-on experience as well as a theoretical introduction to computational models. For more details, click here.
