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 comput

ational factors including limited capacity attention, risk and uncertainty, and affective biases; and it is t

he 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.
