Passcode: 883637

 

Recent discussions in neuroscience have been arguing about the necessity of a revision to our approach in neuroscience. A common approach in neuroscience starts from a phenomenon such as attention or memory as defined from our psychological heritage, trying to find a brain correlate of this phenomenon. This method has been argued to be suffering from two main problems first is the loosely defined psychological terms and second is the correlation fallacy that has been a major concern in neuroscience. We invited two experts in neuroscience from both OIST and RIKEN trying to get their insight on this problem and how different experimental, mathematical and analytical techniques will help us frame a new path in neuroscience research.

Topic: ONOS discussion seminar
