Event description

Description

The Systems Seminars Symposium is an annual discussion-based event co-hosted by the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre and Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, which brings together neuroscience departments from London and abroad to engage with current and future problems in neuroscience.

The topic for this year’s Systems Seminars Symposium is The role of unrestrained and naturalistic behaviour in neuroscience. We will be debating which behavioural paradigms modern neuroscience is best equipped to deal with, and how much insight we gain or sacrifice by using more or less controlled behaviours. Different perspectives on this issue will be presented by experts from across the spectrum of experimental and theoretical neuroscience. After short talks by the speakers, we will hold a panel discussion to provide the opportunity for the audience to engage with the speakers and panel members.

The event will be followed by food and drinks from 6pm onwards.

Speakers (in order of appearance):

Megan Carey, Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown

Matteo Carandini, UCL Institute of Ophthalmology

Christian Machens, Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown

Additional Panel:

Kate Jeffrey, UCL Institute for Behavioural Neuroscience

Adam Kampff, UCL Sainsbury-Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour

Tiago Branco, UCL Sainsbury-Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour
