Second Polish-Norwegian Neuroinformatics Workshop

Second Polish-Norwegian Neuroinformatics Workshop entitled “How to model neurons and neural systems? Integrating biophysics, morphology, and connectivity” was held at the Nencki Institute on January 14-15, 2010. The workshop was sponsored by the Polish-Norwegian Research Fund and the Nencki Institute. The main goal of the workshop was discussion of different aspects of modeling the nervous system from cellular to systems level. Prof. Rodney Douglas, Director of the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich started the workshop with an open lecture „Can we build a brain?” where he addressed the difficulties facing today's attempts to build hardware or software mimicking or simulating higher functions of the nervous system. Over 70 people from about 35 institutions took part in the Workshop, including 25 foreign participants and 15 people from Nencki.
