The Seventh International Symposium on "Biology of Decision Making" (SBDM)

The objective of this three-day symposium will be to gather people from different research fields with different approaches (economics, ethology, psychiatry, neural and computational approaches) to decision making.

The conference will include 5 sessions:

Habitual decision-making;

Beliefs and decision-making;

Dynamics of decision-making;

Noise and variability in decision-making;

Hormones and decision-making.

Donders Ontmoet Onderwijs

Donders Ontmoet Onderwijs 2016: Focus & Flow in de klas

We willen leerlingen vol aandacht in de klas om de kennis op te zuigen die we aanbieden in de les. We willen ook graag dat leerlingen zich sociaal en creatief ontwikkelen. Maar gaat dit wel samen?

Op het Congres Donders Ontmoet Onderwijs 2016 dagen toponderzoekers van het Donders Instituut Nijmegen en bedreven workshopleiders je uit om mee te denken over thema's als aandacht, focus, flow en creativiteit in de klas.

Geïnteresseerden kunnen zich via deze website aanmelden.

Computational Psychiatry (Symposium)

  • Donders Centre for Cogntive Neuroimaging (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Computational psychiatry is an emerging field built on recent developments in machine learning, computational and systems neuroscience, which promises to construct computational models of brain and behavior to help prevention, diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders. The symposium will focus on exchanging the latest ideas and observations on the computational and neural mechanisms of learning and decision making in the healthy populations and patients.

Organisers: Payam Piray, Roshan Cools & Ivan Toni

  • Google Calendar ICS


Synopsis of Meeting

“Control Processes” will bring together a diverse group of scientists each year addressing cognitive control function from a range of approaches and levels of analysis, including human cognitive psychology, computational modeling, neuroscience, anatomy, disease and disorder, and animal models. The first meeting will be held at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) on Nov 10-11, 2016.

Radboud Summer School

Neurocomputational approaches to decision making: from perception to social cognition

Organized by Ivan Toni and Roshan Cools

In this course you will learn how to use modern computational approaches to further your understanding of the human mind and its neural implementation. You will learn how to combine state‐of‐the art research approaches, adopting computational models of human behaviour and testing those models with neurophysiological and neuroimaging methods. This course will promote the integration of these disciplines and approaches, stimulating new ways of conceptualising human behaviour, and new lines of research to understand complex brain functions.
