Sponsored by the INC
This two days workshop, organized by Pascal Mamassian (INC) at the Paris Center of University of Chicago Center (6 rue Thomas Mann, 75013), fostered intense interactions among a group of established scientists in the field of perception, learning and decision-making.
Subject: an important aspect of neural representations is the faithfulness with which they represent the external world. Biological systems have limitations in both the capacity (raw quantity) and rate (acquisition speed) of neural processing. As a consequence, neural representations can be incomplete or ambiguous. This can result in human experiences that do not accurately reflect the external world. These experiences illuminate neural representations that mediate many kinds of normal behavior.
