In the past scientists involved in immune and bone cell investigations have rarely interacted in a significant way as these disciplines have developed independently and, for the most part, remain separate. The conference will bring together leading international scientists from both fields to interact so that new collaboration can develop and more rapid progress in understanding the relationships between these fields can be achieved. Short talks will be selected from abstracts from the international community. This conference will have a format to provide an environment of maximum interaction and interchange through lectures, posters, and open discussion.
This book includes the papers presented at four major symposia:
Part I - Cognitive Neuroscience
Part II - Biologically Inspired Systems
Part III - Neural Computation
Part IV - Models of Consciousness.
