Janelia Spring Conference: Combining Information from Multiple Modalities Across the Animal Kingdom

Posted on Apr 6, 2015 3:52:00 AM

Conference - Ashburn, VA, United States
Multisensory integration provides an ideal model system in which to examine neural computations underlying statistical inference, and to understand how computations performed at the level of single neurons and neural populations mediate behavior.  This conference will cover many of the latest advances in our understanding of the principles by which information from multiple modalities is combined in a range of model organisms. We will bring together researchers who are tackling this problem using behavioral, computational, neurophysiological and anatomical (connectomics) approaches. Talks will cover a range of topics, including: behavioral strategies underlying cue integration and causal inference, structural basis of multimodal integration, functional properties of multimodal neurons, computations performed by multisensory neurons and circuits, and models for probabilistic computation by populations of neurons.
