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 11th-13th, 2017 : We will hold the 17th Winter Workshop in Rusutsu, Hokkaido, Japan.

January 6th-8th, 2016 : The 16th Winter Workshop was held 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 !!
