Summary

The goal of the course is to increase awareness and knowledge of the diverse aspects of research in decision making and reinforcement learning

Content

Each course will address a specific and important, rapidly developing field such as reward-guided learning, multi-dimensional decision making, neural plasticity, neural correlates of decision making, as well as cognitive and computational neuroscience. Students will be introduced, by experts in the field, to fundamental concepts and recent findings related to these fields with a particular emphasis to neural implementation of learning models. During this course, the students will aquire a broad knowledge about neural and computational mechanisms of learning and decision making. Students will also be exposed to novel approaches and methodologies in both human learning systems. Students will be evaluated by an assignment related to recommended articles and speakers lectures.

Learning and decision making are essential to human behaviour. Technological and conceptual advances are now providing exciting new perspectives using multidisciplinary approaches such as EEG, fMRI and computational models to understand the process. In this meeting, we will discuss recent progress in our understanding of neural circuits focusing on plasticity, neural correlates and computational models of learning.

The course will take place during 2 days. (Detail program to be decided')
