Dear colleagues,

August 5 – 9 2019 will see the sixth Model-Based Neuroscience Summer
School, hosted at the University of Amsterdam.

The summer school will provide participants with hands-on experience in
both cognitive modeling using evidence-accumulation models and cognitive
neuroscience methods. The program includes a series of lectures on
model-based decision neuroscience from experts including Andrew Heathcote,
Gordon Logan, Brandon Turner, Dora Matzke, Sebastian Gluth, Bernadette van
Wijk, and Birte Forstmann.

The summer school is aimed at PhD students and early postdocs who wish to
combine cognitive modeling with experimental and theoretical neuroscience
research. Participants should be familiar with general programming concepts
and state in their statement of interest which programming languages and
software packages they typically use.

The Summer School will be followed by a 3-day Model-based Neuroscience
BrainHack. The goals of the BrainHack are to 1) familiarize participants
with the techniques covered in the Summer School in a practical, applied
context; 2) foster interactions between scientists from different
backgrounds with an interest in formally modeling brain and behavior; 3)
share data, expertise, and try out new ideas.

*Application and registration:*

The registration fee for the Summer School is € 400 (depending on
availability of spots, on site-registration is also possible for € 500).
Participants should make their own housing arrangements. Space is limited,
therefore we ask participants to provide a statement of interest. We will
select participants based on the relevance of the Summer School to their
research. The application deadline is June 1, 2019.

More information about the Summer School and the BrainHack including
lecturers, preliminary program, and application can be found at

We look forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam!
