Registration & fees

$350 CAD per ticket

The aim of Brain Connectivity Workshop is to establish a dialogue between researchers in computational neuroscience, neuroscience methodology and experimental neuroscience about the emerging field of brain connectivity.

This year the workshop will revisit the first ever Brain Connectivity workshop theme from a different perspective: "What does the mind think of the brain?" - focusing the discussions around what we have learned about our mind over the last 20 years of brain connectomics.

The topics will deal with consciousness and cognition, looking at the tripartite relationship between anatomical connectivity, brain dynamics and cognitive function.

The Brain Connectivity Workshop is conveniently right before OHBM in Montreal, Canada (June 26-30).


Tickets for this workshops are limited. You can buy tickets for $350 CAD online.
