CRI Haifa Neurocomputation Laboratory Day

Sunday, Feb 3, 2013 
Room 665 CRI Seminar Room, Education Building, 6th floor.   9:30 - 4:30

You are all invited to a day of lectures on Neurocomputation centered on work being performed at the Neurocomputation Laboratory located in the Caesarea Rothschild Institute.


This is a good opportunity for potential graduate students to see the kind of work performed there; or just those who find the subject interesting.
