Computational Neuroscience of Prediction
15-18 April 2018: Rungstedgaard, North of Copenhagen, Denmark
Prediction is a pervasive requirement for organisms to be able to prepare for and adapt to complex, changing and challenging environments. Prediction is affected by cognitive and computational factors including limited capacity attention, risk and uncertainty, and affective biases; and it is the topic of a wealth of neuroscience experiments ranging from behavioural studies to powerful new approaches such as optogenetics. In this workshop, we will examine the problems and prospects for prediction from the combined perspectives of experimental and theoretical neuroscience, psychology and economics.
Organised by FENS in collaboration with The Brain Prize, these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.
Application opens on 23 October 2017.
