About the Symposium
The brain has a complex neural structure that can cause highly adaptive behavior. New methods of analyzing and understanding the brain’s neural structure provide increasingly large amounts of data. Quantitative computational models can help us use this data to tease apart the neural mechanisms that affect behavior.
This comprehensive symposium incorporates researchers from diverse areas of neuroscience to highlight the ways in which computational models can be used to understand how neural activity gives rise to behavior.
