Research Colloquium: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Episodic Memory

This research colloquium covers the range of topics in the interdisciplinary research unit FOR 2812 "Constructing scenarios of the past: A new framework in episodic memory". Presentations will focus on the cognitive and neuronal mechanisms underlying scenario contraction in episodic memory. The discussed studies employ and integrate approaches from philosophy, psychology, as well as experimental and computational neurscience.  The colloquium hosts talks by leading international experts and local researchers as well as presentations by doctoral and master students. In addition, students will read journal articles and book chapters related to the topics of the talks.

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.
