Come learn more about deep networks from graduate students Aran Nayebi and Josh Melander. Deep neural networks have emerged as a powerful and flexible class of models for brain activity and behavior. But what is the objective of these modeling efforts? Do we intend to reproduce the brain in a 1-to-1 manner, or could more abstract models serve a purpose? This session will spark discussion of the history of brain modeling, current practices, and implications for future research. Graduate students and postdocs are both encouraged to attend!
