Het Klaslokaal – Persectives on Neuroscience #4
What can we learn from virtual brains? What is the future of brain-computer interfaces? In this lecture PhD candidate Marco Aqil will reflect on the future of neuroscience. By exploiting the seemingly limitless possibilities of the virtual world, computational neuroscience makes it possible to construct and test advanced theories of how the brain works, and build models from real-life data using machine learning.
Marco Aqil's lecture is an accessible introduction to the rapidly growing field of computational neuroscience, touching on futuristic topics that turn out to be acutely relevant today.
Perspectives on Neuroscience is a lecture series of Het Klaslokaal that explores the human brain.
Our brain is considered to be the most complex object known today, and how it works is still largely a mystery. Understanding how it works, as well as its enigmatic relation to the mind, involves the joint efforts of widely different researchers and theoreticians. Our increasing understanding of the brain is likely to permeate and transform many aspects of our lives in the future.
