10-11 Sep 2015 Paris (France)


This workshop gathers researchers from the theoretical and experimental fields working on the underpinning of probabilistic inference in the brain, in order to make the link between both perspectives. Results from the theory will be reviewed to present state-of-the-art models of probabilistic inference at the neuronal level. Key experimental data characterizing the inferential capabilities of the brain will also be presented. Both perspectives will be confronted in order to identify existing and missing data that could refute particular models.
