Computational Neuroscience Seminars

We are running a bi-weekly journal club series (mostly during term time) with occasional additional talks by external speakers. The location is usually CBL Seminar Room #438.

Upcoming events are listed below, for more information (e.g. past talks) see web page at talks.cam where you can also subscribe for e-mail alerts.

For further information and to subscribe for e-mail announcements please contact Cristina Savin.

For past talks see the archive.
