Online CBC Seminar

Os reenviamos un mensaje sobre el próximo CBC Seminar de la Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

La Junta Directiva de la SEPEX

Dear all,

We have the pleasure to announce a CBC Seminar, which will be given via Zoom on:

FRIDAY, November 12, 2021, at 12:00 PM CET.

 Uta Noppeney
from Radboud University

invited by Salvador Soto-Faraco

will give a talk entitled  

Making sense of the senses

Abstract: Our senses are constantly bombarded with a myriad of diverse signals. Transforming this ensory cacophony into a coherent percept of our environment relies on solving two computational challenges: First, we need to solve the causal inference problem – deciding whether signals come from a common cause and thus should be integrated, or come from different sources and be treated independently. Second, when there is a common cause, we should integrate signals across the senses weighted in proportion to their sensory reliabilities. I discuss recent research at the behavioural, computational and neural systems level that investigates how the brain addresses these two computational challenges in multisensory perception.

We look forward to «seeing» you all!
