The Brain Conferences: Computational Neuroscience of Prediction

Organised by FENS ( (the major neuroscience association in Europe) in collaboration with The Brain Prize, the Brain Conferences establish a series of high-level meetings on neuroscience in Europe.

Prediction is a pervasive requirement for organisms to be able to prepare for and adapt to complex, changing and challenging environments. Prediction is affected by cognitive and computational factors including limited capacity attention, risk and uncertainty, and affective biases; and it is the topic of a wealth of neuroscience experiments ranging from behavioural studies to powerful new approaches such as optogenetics. In this Brain Conference, we will examine the problems and prospects for prediction from the combined perspectives of experimental and theoretical neuroscience, psychology and economics.
