2. Polish-Norwegian Neuroinformatics Workshop

The workshop was sponsored by the Polish-Norwegian Research Fund and the Nencki Institute. The main goal of the workshop was to discuss different aspects of modelling the nervous system from the cellular to the systems level. Prof. Rodney Douglas, Director of the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich inaugurated the workshop with an open lecture „Can we build a brain?” addressing difficulties facing attempts to build hardware or software mimicking or stimulating the higher functions of the nervous system. Over 70 people from about 35 institutions took part in the workshop, including 25 foreign participants and 15 people from Nencki.
