    Aims and Scope of the School:

    The aim of this 2-week School is to provide an opportunity for senior PhD students and post-doctoral fellows in the Asia-Pacific region to acquire knowledge and practical experience in some cutting-edge neuroscience research techniques.


    Focusing on electrophysiological and neuroimaging approaches, the School will introduce to participants advanced technologies such as multi-photon imaging, in vivo multi-electrode recording, in vitro and in vivo patch-clamping and optogenetics. Emphasis will be put on experimental design, data analysis and hands-on experience of relevant techniques, together with special lectures. Hosted by the Hong Kong Society of Neurosciences, the School will be based in the School of Biomedical Sciences at CUHK, with participation by other higher institutes.

    Who should apply to this School?

    Applications from senior PhD candidates and postdoctoral fellows residing in the Asia-Pacific region are welcome. Students will be selected on the basis of academic record and written statements concerning their interest in neuroscience and what they expect to get out of the School. At least once scientific publication is expected from successful candidates. Around 10 to 12 candidates will be selected to ensure a small student to teacher ratio.

    What costs will be covered for selected applicants?

    For successful applicants, air tickets (excluding local transportation in the home country and visa fee), accommodations, local transportation and most meals will be covered by the School.
