"It's virtually impossible for any individual researcher to maintain an integrated view of the brain and to relate his or her narrow findings to this whole cloth," he said. "It's no longer sufficient for neuroscientists to simply publish their findings piecemeal. We're trying to make the most of advanced information technologies to weave their data into an understandable tapestry."
The conference will feature neuroscience opinion leaders on the first day, followed by HBP grantees on the second day. There will also be a poster session at the working lunch and at the reception at the end of the first day.
"The presentations will highlight what is now possible because of these ten years of research in Neuroscience Informatics," added Koslow.
