OIST neuroscience online seminars (ONOS)

This is a series of online seminars hosted by the OIST Neuroscience Club, trying to foster the discussion and interaction between computational and experimental neuroscience.

This initiative was motivated in part by the COVID-19 epidemic and the need for social distancing. We hope to make this online series an ongoing, standard way of continuous scientific interaction with various labs across the world.

We happily receive guest talk suggestions from OIST members and give priority talks which combine both experimental and computational perspectives. A number of OIST professors are helping us in the selection and invitation process, also.

Please send us your suggestions or feedback. 

2021 organizers: C.Galetzka (cedric.galetzka@oist.jp) and K.Tsaridis(Konstantinos.Tsaridis@oist.jp)
2020 organziers: T.Burns and M. ElTabbal
