Neuronal dynamics provide a powerful theoretical language for the design and modeling of embodied and situated cognitive systems.
This school provides a hands-on and down-to-earth introduction to neuronal dynamics ideas and enables participants to become productive within this framework.

The school is aimed at advanced undergraduate or graduate students, postdocs and faculty members in embodied cognition, cognitive science, and robotics.

The school combines tutorial lectures in the mornings with hands-on projects working with robotic systems.
Participants will develop their own modeling project, which may connect to their ongoing doctoral or postdoctoral research.

Topics addressed include neural dynamics, attractor dynamics and instabilities, dynamic field theory, neuronal representations, artificial perception, simple forms of cognition including detection and selection decisions, memory formation, learning, and grounding relational concepts.

To apply

Selection of participants will begin by May 27, 2020.
