    The Biomedical Simulations Resource
    of the
    University of Southern California

    announces a two-day Short Course on

    COMPUTER SIMULATION IN NEUROBIOLOGY

    May 30-31, 1992

    This course will illustrate the use of modeling and simulation in the
    exploration of research design and hypothesis testing in experimental
    neurobiology. Lectures, discussions, and computer laboratory sessions
    will focus on three exemplary case histories that are experimental bases
    of important current theoretical concepts in the neurobiology of movement
    and perception.

    Three short background papers will be distributed to participants in
    advance:

    (1) Bizzi, Mussa-Ivaldi & Giszter (1991)
    Computations underlying the execution of movement:
    a biological perspective.
    Science 253, 287-291.

    (2) Georgopoulos, Schwartz & Kettner (1986)
    Neuronal population coding of movement direction.
    Science 233, 1416-1419.

    (3) Hecht, Schlaer & Pirenne (1941)
    Energy at the threshold of vision.
    Science 93, 585-587.

    The course is intended primarily for college and university instructors,
    postdoctoral scholars and graduate students. Prior computer experience is
    not essential, but it will be assumed that participants have some understanding
    of basic issues in contemporary neurobiology.

    There will be no registration fee, but a nominal fee for course materials
    (discettes, notes, etc.) will be charged. Enrollment is limited; early
    registration is advised.

    Course Instructor: George P. Moore, PhD
    Biomedical Engineering, USC

    Associate Instructor: Reza Shadmehr, PhD
    Brain & Cognitive Sciences, MIT
