The Second NeuroBridges Meeting

September 7, 2015 - September 9, 2015


  • Ahmed El Hady (Princeton University)
  • Yonatan Loewenstein (Hebrew University)
  • Gianluigi Mongillo (CNRS, Université Paris Descartes)

The goal of this workshop is to serve as a bridge between experimental and theoretical neuroscientists addressing system-level questions with the hope of establishing as many as possible new collaborations.

In addition to the scientific exchange goal, we believe that scientists have a responsibility, which goes beyond their own research. Scientists should promote common understanding between people from different nations. Therefore, the workshop will bring together Arab, French and Israeli scientists. We believe that such scientific collaborations can lead to personal relations, and in the long run may alleviate the political distress between Arabs and Israelis.

This event as the second workshop in an annual tradition aimed at fostering scientific collaborations between Israeli and Arab neuroscientists (see the first NeuroBridges meeting).

Lectures are open for the public and there is no registration fee but space is limited. Therefore, those planning to attend are kindly requested to send an email to inform the organizers.
