Back to ATLNextGenNeuro Workshop 2020.

Atlanta Next Gen Neuro is a collaborative group of faculty at Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology, with the mission of developing experimental and theoretical foundations for the next decade of computational and systems neuroscience research, and of growing the community of like-minded researchers in the Atlanta area.

On March 20-21, 2020, we are hosting a 1.5 day movement workshop titled Individuality in movement: Locomotion, from equations to interventions. This workshop will span topics related to the variability and individuality of locomotion as a movement pattern across multiple species, ranging from insects to animals to humans.
