Neural information and coding workshop 2001
March 17-March 20, 2001
Big Sky, Montana
To bring together experimental and theoretical neuroscientists for a
small (~70 people) intensive three day workshop. The emphasis will be
on how new experimental and theoretical approaches can be combined to
better understand neural coding. Topics include population coding,
information theoretic analyses of coding, the possible importance of
spike timing in neural transmission, and plasticity.
The format is the same as last year: morning sessions from 8-11:30,
break to 5 pm, sessions
from 7-9. Talks will be 35 minutes each, with 15 minutes for
questions (by keeping the group small, we hope to encourage lively
debates). There will also be two evening poster sessions.

The meeting is at about 7500 ft above sea level, and some people
(including those in good physical condition) experience mild to
moderate altitude sickness for the first few days. The prescription
diuretic acetazolamide (Diamox) taken several days prior to arrival
can prevent some of the symptoms. Bring the following paper to your
physician: "High altitude sickness", Medical Letter on Drugs and
Therapeutics, 1992 Sep 4, 34(878):84-6.
