Conference Room, CiNet Bldg.
(1-4, Yamadaoka, Suita City, Osaka, 565-0871 Japan)

Recent progress on systems neuroscience suggests functional roles of neural oscillations in perception, cognition and behavior. In this CiNet conference, we invite world-leading researchers utilizing psychological, elecrophysiological and non-invasive brain imaging techniques, and discuss the cutting edge findings and future directions of the researches on neural oscillations.
