"Systems Neurobiology" is a research field aiming for understanding the brain nervous system from molecules to behavior as a multi-scale systems. In this workshop, six world-leading researchers in this field are invited and talk about cutting-edge research. You can learn mathematical modeling in neurobiology research, basic research topics in neurobiology and molecular biology, and the latest insights integrated measurement technologies such as nanotechnology.
