Workshop "Linking behavioral and neural dynamics", Oct 16 (online)

Online workshop "Linking behavioral and neural dynamics" on Friday, 16 October 2020, 5pm-8pm CEST

The workshop seeks to bring together experimental and computational work to discuss recent advances and to promote interaction between the two fields. Specifically, the workshop will focus on (1) novel experimental techniques that allow measurement of behavior at different temporal and spatial scales and (2) data-driven computational analysis of the measured behaviors. We will discuss the utility and the challenges of modern machine learning-based approaches, the integration of different temporal and spatial scales, and theoretical frameworks that enable new ways of studying brain function related to behavior.
