WoRB: Driving and Decoding
Proudly we announce the first Workshop on Rhythms in the Brain (WoRB) held in Glasgow on Monday, 11 Sep 2017. WoRB sets the stage for four leading experts show-casing and discussing their state-of-the-art research in this intense half-day programme.

WoRB aims to gather a broad audience interested in the significance of rhythmic brain activity for cognitive function. Two key aspects will be in the spotlight: 1) What do brain rhythms code for and how do they give rise to the complexity and efficiency in human behaviour? 2) How can we drive brain rhythms and establish their causal role in cognition through brain stimulation?

The WoRB format delivers condensed talks with opportunity to discuss and get together with the speakers during breaks. It is our hope that WoRB fosters scientific exchange and spawns future perspectives for research into the functional role of intrinsic brain rhythms.
