RITA HANSL – Computational neuroscience: modelling how humans think that humans think

25. April 2024
19:00 - 21:00

Treffen der Wiener PRO SCIENTIA Gruppe
mit Vortrag von Rita Hansl

The field of cognitive neuroscience centers around the question of how the human brain gives rise to the human mind. The aim is to understand how human behavior and emotions emerge and how they are manifested in neural processes. Traditionally, theoretical models have been  established to explain observable human behavior. While this approach is still valuable, the rapidly developing discipline of computational science has revolutionized the method.

The newborn discipline of computational neuroscience uses mathematical models and computer simulations to predict human behavior. In combination with neuroimaging techniques, this approach allows for novel insights into brain dynamics and grants a deeper understanding for the workings of the human mind.
