Connecting European Neuroscience

Computational Neuroscience of Prediction

15-18 April 2018: Rungstedgaard, north of Copenhagen, Denmark

Note: The poster board dimensions for the scheduled Poster Sesssions are of 1 meter wide and 2 meters high (portrait format).

- Read here the interview with Peter Dayan and Kerstin Preuschoff, the Brain Conference co-chairs.

montPrediction 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 Brain Conference, 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 Lundbeck Foundation, the awarder of 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.

The Brain Conferences

The Brain Conferences are intimate-scale meetings focused on current topics in neuroscience. Two conferences per year are organised by FENS in collaboration with Lundbeck Foundation, the awarder of The Brain Prize.
