Meeting/Workshop

Computational Neuroscience Initiative Basel: Elias Schneidman, Weizmann Institute of Science

December 4 - 5, 2019

Basel (Switzerland)

INTRODUCTION

Elad Schneidman* (Weizmann Institute of Science) works at the intersection of neuroscience, machine learning and study of behavior. He would like to understand the neural code and how large populations of neurons work together for information processing, learning or social interactions. He uses tools from statistical physics, machine learning and information theory to better understand both modeling and experimental results.
