The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour is hosting a Workshop on

PREDICTIVE PROCESSING IN THE BRAIN
8th/9th April 2019 at the SWC in London, UK

In the 1940’s Kenneth Craik postulated that thought serves to model, or parallels, reality much as a computing device does. This idea, that the brain functions by developing a generative model of the environment, is nearly as old as neuroscience. This workshop aims to take stock of current progress and future directions in this field. We will do this by bringing together experts who are investigating neural implementations of predictive processing, inspired by both experimental and theoretical data, across different brain systems. We hope to foster discussions, identify avenues for future research and inspire cross disciplinary collaborations.
