Presseinformation der RUB / Press release RUB
With colleagues from Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona and Oxford University we present concepts of receptor-specific modulations of brain dynamics. We outline how predictions obtained in computer models can be refined by experimental methods. Our long-term goal is to develop new ways of diagnosing and treating mental disorders.
The Institut für Neuroinformatik (INI) is a central research unit of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We aim to understand the fundamental principles through which organisms generate behavior and cognition while linked to their environments through sensory systems and while acting in those environments through effector systems. Inspired by our insights into such natural cognitive systems, we seek new solutions to problems of information processing in artificial cognitive systems. We draw from a variety of disciplines that include experimental approaches from psychology and neurophysiology as well as theoretical approaches from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering and applied computer science, in particular machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer vision.
