The NIDA International Program supported a student in the Advanced Course in Computational Neuroscience, which was held July 30–August 24, 2012, at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Będlewo, Poland. Matt Lewis, a graduate student at Cornell University, participated in the course, which is sponsored by the Federation of European Neurosciences (FENS) and the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO). The course combines lectures on experimental and computational neuroscience topics with practical training in neural modeling. Each student pursues an individual research project and presents the results to students and faculty at the end of the course.
