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 5th-7th, 2022 :The 21st Winter Workshop will be held in Rusutsu, Hokkaido, Japan for the time being.

January 8th-10th, 2020 : The 20th Winter Workshop was held in Rusutsu, Hokkaido, Japan.

January 9th-11th, 2019 : The 19th Winter Workshop was held in Rusutsu, Hokkaido, Japan.

January 9th-11th, 2018 : The 18th Winter Workshop was held in Rusutsu, Hokkaido, Japan.

January 11th-13th, 2017 : The 17th Winter Workshop was held in Rusutsu, Hokkaido, Japan.
