Summer School "Advanced tools for data analysis in Neuroscience"

August 30 - September 3, 2021

Strasbourg (France)


Summer school 2022: Information and application to be found here.

Research discoveries are increasingly dependent on the development of new tools and technologies, as well as on the ability to process, manage and analyze the large amounts of data collected with these tools.

In this summer school, we will focus on several aspects of data preparation and analysis, as well as on the use of simulation and modeling tools capable of generating predictions. These tools will be applied to different data acquisition techniques such as electrophysiological recordings (e.g. EEG, intra or extracellular recordings) or image series from brain imaging (e.g. MRI).


Target audience:

Master and PhD students from the University of Strasbourg and other French and foreign universities. Priority will be given to students enrolled in a basic or medical neuroscience program, but students from other specialties will be able to participate as long as places are available.

There is no registration fee.

Scholarships of 500 euros will be offered to non-Strasbourg students to cover travel and accommodation costs.

Students are encouraged to come with their own dataset.

Neurex workshops are part of the cycle B5 of the University of Basel. They allow students to gain Credit Points from attending workshops/meetings.

This specific workshop will give rise to the attribution of 1,5 CP.
