Kavli Distinguished Lecture:
Bence Ölveczky "How the brain learns motor skills"

On Tuesday 17 March at 15.00, Bence Ölveczky will give a Kavli Distinguished lecture titled  "How the brain learns motor skills"

Bence Ölveczky is a John L. Loeb Associate Professor of the Natural Sciences at Harvard University,Department of Organismic & Evolutionary Biology, Center for Brain Science

The main focus of the Ölveczky  lab is to understand the neural circuit mechanisms underlying vocal learning in songbirds.

Marty Saggese,  "SfN: Creating Compelling Value for Members… and How This Relates to Roald Amundsen?"

CEO of Society for neuroscience Marty Saggese

10 September at 16.00 

MTFS, meeting room 5th floor, Campus Øya.

Marty Saggese, Executive Director of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN), will talk about SfN, what it does, and why scientists around the world should care. 

He will touch on how science and scientific careers are changing around the world, and share his thoughts about what scientists will need to do in the future to ensure continuing strong support for science from governments and the public. He really will talk about Roald Amundsen, and some lessons about his leadership style that were highlighted in Jim Collins' recent management book, Great By Choice, and that can apply to all organizations and professions.


Spitsbergen 2014: Neural Networks in the Arctic

Map with Stitsbergen area marked with an arrowAn open-atmosphere workshop that will explore how activity in complex neural networks gives rise to behaviour. Some of the world's very best researchers on neural networks and systems will gather to discuss fundamental principles of neural organization and function.

From 5-10 June 2014, we will host a neural workshop in Longyearbyen, on the island of Spitsbergen at 79 degrees North.
