Midsummer Brains - Computational Neuroscience from my point of view

When? June, 24 2019
Where? BCF Werkstatt,
              Hansastr. 9a, Freiburg
Computational neuroscience is a highly interdisciplinary field ranging from mathematics, physics and engineering to biology, medicine and psychology.

Interdisciplinary collaborations have resulted in many groundbreaking innovations both in the research and application.

The basis for successful collaborations is the ability to communicate across disciplines:

What projects are the others working on? Which techniques and methods are they using? How is data collected, used and stored?

Under the title Computational Neuroscience from my point of view, five experts from the SMARTSTART faculty describe their view on computational neuroscience in theory and application, and share experiences they had with interdisciplinary projects.

 Speakers are:

  •  Jan Benda (Biophysicist, Neuroethology)
  • Stefan Glasauer (Engineer, Sensorimotor research)
  • Petra Ritter (Medical doctor, Brain simulation)
  • Fabian Sinz (Computer Scientist, Neuronal building blocks of intelligence)
  • Tatjana Tchumatchenko (Physicist, Theory of neural dynamics)

 Discussions will continue at the Meet-the-Scientist BBQ following the lectures.

Please note, these lectures will be recorded for subsequent publishing as online lecture material. The audience will not be filmed.
