This awards provides funding to host the 23rd annual Joint Symposium in Neural Computation (JSNC) at UCLA. JSNC is a regional meeting of Southern California computational neuroscience researchers ( that was founded by Terry Sejnowski of the Salk Institute. The meeting brings together scientists and engineers in Southern California who are interested in the study of neural computation, a highly interdisciplinary field that lies at the intersection of many disciplines including biology, computer science, physics, mathematics, and engineering. This year’s sessions will covers integrated topics including neuroengineering, brain-inspired computing, and theoretical neuroscience.
