OIST neuroscience online seminars (ONOS)

This is a series of online seminars hosted by the inter-unit neuroscience journal club, trying to foster the discussion and interaction between computational and experimental neuroscience. This initiative was motivated in part by the current COVID-19 crisis, we are hoping to make this online series a normal standard way of continuous scientific interaction with various labs across the world.  We are looking forward to receiving guest talk suggestions from all of you. We are trying to choose talks that combine both experimental and computational perspectives. A number of professors are helping us in the selection and invitation process. 

Please send us your suggestions or feedback. 

Organziers: Tom Burns (thomas.burns@oist.jp) and M. ElTabbal (mohamed.eltabbal@oist.jp).
