Two decades into the 21st century, can we claim to be any closer to a unified model of the brain? In this exploratory symposium, we invite submissions for short talks and posters presenting general mathematical models of brain function. We give priority to those models that can account for brain or behavioural data, or provide simulations to that effect. The symposium will be held under the auspices of the applied mathematics conference ICNAAM 2021, to be held on the island of Rhodes, Greece from the 20-26th of September 2021. Attendance at NeuroMONSTER 2021 grants attendees full access to all of ICNAAM 2021, including all associated symposia. See
