2019 Methods in Neuroscience at Dartmouth (MIND) Computational Summer School: Cognitive Maps

Organizing Committee: Luke Chang, Jeremy Manning, Matthijs van der Meer, & Courtney Rogers

Advisory Board: Jim Haxby, Dan Rockmore, & Thalia Wheatley

Dates: August 7-August 17, 2019

Location: The Hanover Inn & Moore Hall, Hanover, NH

Sponsored by the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, Neukom Institute, Research Computing, and the National Science Foundation


We are delighted to welcome applications for the third annual Methods in Neuroscience at Dartmouth (MIND) Computational Summer School. This year's 2019 MIND summer school will be on Cognitive Maps. Cognitive maps are most commonly associated with the representation and navigation of physical space, but the concept of a map is more generally concerned with how experience is organized to form knowledge. Tantalizingly, it seems that the neural encoding of physical space may also underlie the organization of conceptual and social spaces. The 2019 MIND Computational Summer School will provide participants with the tools to study what principles govern the learning, organization, and application of such maps, and to probe their neural underpinnings.
