Computational Neuroscience Initiative Basel Training

Basel (Switzerland)

INTRODUCTION

Alexandre Pouget’s research focuses on understanding how the brain uses probabilistic inference for decision making, especially in the presence of uncertainty. By studying the neural encoding of probabilistic measures and information quantities, his work provides a theoretical framework for how the brain can acquire knowledge. He applies this probabilistic framework to a variety of cognitive processes, like sensory processing, perception and causal reasoning.
