CINPLA organized the first summer-school for the Norwegian Research School in Neuroscience
16-22 August 2015. The program was ambitious and the students were exhausted, but happy after 60 hours with intense theoretical and practical research training.
The aim of the summer school was to give the students a deeper understanding of what we actually measure with some established state-of-the-art methods in neuroscience.
Andy Edwards (patch-clamp), Emre Yaksi & Erlend Nagelhus (Ca2+ imaging), Joel Glover (VSD), Torkel Hafting (tetrode recordings), Torbjørn Ness (computational modeling), Special guest lecturer was Michael Hausser, University College London.

Very readable and thought-provoking opinion article on why physics-type (mechanistic) modelling of the type pursed in CINPLA is important to understand how the brain works:
