Abstract : The Woods Hole Workshop on Computational Neuroscience was held at the Marine Biological Laboratory on August 26 to August 31, 1996. Twenty-two investigators attended the workshop on the computational functions of nervous systems. The topics in computational neuroscience that were discussed included neural systems for learning and long term memory, non-classical responses of cortical neurons, and active perception. In addition, some members of the workshop lectured in the concurrent Computational Neuroscience Course at the Marine Biological Laboratory, and students taking the course were invited to attend the workshop. The Workshop was highly successful at bringing together experimentalists and computational neuroscientists for intense discussions at the forefront of computational neuroscience.
