Lunch | Phillip Wolff, Dieter Jaeger | How to Build Bridges between Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Psychology?
The time seems right to rethink how the fields of cognitive psychology and computational neuroscience could take advantage of each other. Both fields make use of quantitative models, one of cognitive processes the other of brain processes. Since the brain ultimately supports cognitive processes one should think these levels of description should merge. Interestingly that has largely not happened yet. We will discuss possible approaches and areas of content where such overlap might become possible in the near future. [February 19, 2015]
