This mini-symposium's goal is to establish novel collaborations and interactions focused on the Brain Activity Map which will lead to stronger applications for funding in this area in the future. This symposium will bring together neuroscientists, engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians and nanotechnologists to discuss new methods of analysis and we especially encourage members of the School of Engineering and the School of Arts and Sciences to participate.
