THEME:
The 5th European Neuro-IT and Neuroengineering school will focus on a  new and rapidly growing field - the area of ?Neuro-IT' and  ?neuroengineering' where neuroscience, cognitive science, information  technology and robotics are approaching each other and starting to  merge in interdisciplinary projects. It is intended to be an  international, multi-disciplinary platform for junior and senior  researchers and other professionals working in the field of Neuro-IT,  as well as for students of engineering, physics, medicine, biology,  or psychology. The 2007 summerschool will thematically focus on  "Cognition & Action".

Key topics of the summerschool will include:
- Executive functions, action planning & decision making
- Movement preparation, skills, habits
- Neuroprosthetics & brain-machine interfaces

The school is organized and funded by two European networks:
- Neuro-IT.net (www.neuro-it.net) - a network that aims at developing  the field of neuroengineering
- euCognition.org (www.eucognition.org) - a network fostering the  development of artificial cognitive systems
