Computational Neuroscience Initiative Basel Training - FMI Basel

November 15 - 16, 2018

Basel (Switzerland)


Christian Machens, a physicist by training, is searching for a mathematical description of how neurons in the brain coordinate their activity in order to process
incoming sensory information. He works closely with experimentalists and develops models for information processing in the brain, as well as new ways to visualize how neurons simultaneously represent sensory information and decisions.

Please join us at the Friedrich Miescher Institute Basel for an exciting talk and workshop about what spikes can tell us.


Guest speaker: Dr Christian Machens (Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown, Lisbon, Portugal)
