Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School (TENSS) 2018
TENSS concentrates top-level international expertise to teach a dozen students techniques and concepts in experimental systems neuroscience.
We focus on modern optical and electrophysiological methods to study the connectivity and function of neuronal circuits.
The course is designed to be intensive and highly interactive, including both lab sessions and theoretical lectures.
Coursework will take place in a land of myth and legend, beyond large forests (Transylvania), on the shores of a picturesque natural reserve called Pike Lake.
Applications are welcome from interested (and interesting) graduate students and postdocs.
