Computational neuroscience is a highly interdisciplinary field ranging from mathematics, physics and engineering to biology, medicine and psychology. In this webinar series, six experts describe their view on computational neuroscience in theory and application, and share experiences they had with interdisciplinary projects.
Julijana Gjorgjieva is group leader at the Max-Planck-Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt and professor at the technical university in Munich. In this talk she shows how she came from mathematics to computational neuroscience and how theory and application can be combined.
Constantin Rothkopf is professor in the psychology department and the founding director of the Center for Cognitive Science at the Technical University Darmstadt. He literally gives his view on computational neuroscience – specifically how vision affects decision.
Tatjana Tchumatchenko talked about the windy road from experiment to insight and publication. She is the head of the theory of neural dynamics group at the MPI for Brain Research in Frankfurt (tchumatchenko.de/).
Fabian Sinz talked about his point of view on computational neuroscience. He is group leader of the neuronal intelligence lab in Tübingen as part of the CyberValley initiative (sinzlab.org/) and member of the SMARTSTART Faculty.
