Workshop on the Mechanism of Brain and Mind

Mt.Yotei, @ Hokkaido in Japan

Workshop on Mechanism of Brain and Mind

The primary goal of the workshop is to help foster a theoretical foundation for experimental neuroscience. Every summer and winter, the workshop has attracted over 100 systems neuroscientists, from both theoretical and experimental backgrounds.


January 6th-8th, 2016 : We plan to hold The 16th Winter Workshop in Rusutsu, Hokkaido, Japan.

January 7th-9th, 2015 : The 15th Winter Workshop was held in Rusutsu, Hokkaido, Japan.

October 6th, 2014 : Professor John O'Keefe, our guest speaker in Summer Workshop 2012, has won for Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Congratulations !!

   (General Discussion in the Summer Workshop in 2012)   

September 14th, 2014 : The 15th Summer Workshop was held in Hitotsubashi-Hall.100 people participated in our symposium.
