Connecting European Neuroscience

The Brain Conferences: Computational Neuroscience of Prediction

April 15th, 2018 to April 18th, 2018
Rungstedgaard, Denmark

About the Event


Peter Dayan (Univ. College London, UK)     &Kerstin Preuschoff (EPFL & Univ. of Geneva, Switzerland)


  • 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.
  • Early registration deadline: 20 January 2018 (23:59 PM, Brussels time).                                  
    Regular registration deadline: 14 February 2018 (23:59 PM, Brussels time).
