Research in Encoding and Decoding of Neural Ensembles
22-26 June 2016
Nomikos Conference Centre
Santorini, Greece

A fundamental problem in neuroscience is to understand how the
activation of neuronal populations gives rise to higher order
functions including learning, memory, cognition, perception, action
and ultimately conscious awareness. Electrophysiological recordings
have revealed considerable information about the firing patterns of
single neurons, but it remains largely a mystery how collections of
individual neurons interact to perform these functions.  Understanding
ensemble activity is critical to understanding the brain.


The AREADNE Conferences have been created to gather global scientific
leaders who work on neural ensembles and establish a touch-point for
the widely disparate and hybrid field. With a spectacular setting on
Santorini, the conferences have been carefully planned to foster
discussion and interaction between attendees to encourage the
establishment of lasting professional relationships.  The meetings
continue our efforts to promote systems neuroscience in Greece through
creating a world-class forum for cutting-edge research.  For 2016, we
will be Celebrating Ten Years of AREADNE Conferences!


The conference will span four days, in morning and early evening
sessions.  Confirmed speakers include experts in the field of
multi-neuron experiment, theory, and analysis (in alphabetic order):

The timing of the DENDRITES 2016 meeting (http://dendrites2016.gr) in
Crete dovetails quite nicely with the AREADNE 2016 meeting in
