International Network for Bio-Inspired Computation

Mini-workshop on State-Dependent Computation

Center for Neurotechnology, CSE2 382 
Neural processing and brain representations are strongly dependent on state, in many senses: on recent experience, on global states such as arousal and motivation, and on current behavioral goals.
The goal of this mini workshop is to share ideas about how neural architecture causes these state changes and how state dependence contributes to neural computation.
Thursday, November 17
9:30am Alain Destexhe seminar, (HSB 328) “Awake perception is associated with dedicated neuronal assemblies in cerebral cortex
