The Workshop will be divided into two sessions.

Morning: Intracellular and extracellular recordings of synaptic activity of neurons. Modelling and interpretation in the context of neural synaptic excitation and inhibition.

Afternoon: Recording sensory evoked potentials using human EEG. Interpretation of EEG signals, including sensory evoked potentials, in the context of balanced excitation and inhibition. Measuring excitation and inhibition in neurological conditions including autism, epilepsy, schizophrenia and in aging.


During the Workshop, posters will be displayed in an adjacent seminar room. Poster presentation will be held during lunch. If you would like to present a poster at this event, please let us know when you register.
