Colloquium: Learning and Memory

We will discuss the latest research results in learning and memory at the systems level. Each session will be based on a journal article or unpublished results. These will be presented by one participants and discussed by all. The topics will include a diverse set of approaches: electrophysiology, imaging, computational modeling, and robotics. They will be selected particularly in the areas of spatial and episodic memory with a focus on the functional role of the mamalian hippocampus.

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.
