Computational Neuroscience and the Hybrid Brain

 

Abstract Booklet

Computational Neuroscience and Neurotechnology both have a strong need for concepts, tools and data to understand the brain's networks in function and dysfunction, and to interact with these networks in a meaningful way.

In our upcoming international workshop "Computational Neuroscience and the Hybrid Brain" we invite scientists and engineers working in these fields to review the state of the art and to explore new perspectives. We aim to address current topics in the fields of computational neuroscience, brain-machine interfaces, neurotechnology, and neuro-ethics.

The workshop will be a joint event of the Bernstein Center Freiburg (BCF), the Bernstein Focus Neurotechnology 'Hybrid Brain' Freiburg*Tübingen, the new Carl-Zeiss Center for Computational Neuroscience in Brain Disease at the BCF, and Neurex.
