Cognitive Computational Neuroscience

Cognitive computational neuroscience is the study of brain higher cognitive functions in a computational modeling framework. Higher cognition refers to information processing at a macroscopic scale, being single neuron dynamics modeling the atomic description of information processing. In the Lab, our aim is to deepen our understanding of the underlying information processing that takes place in the brain during, for instance, decision making and confidence assessments, decision chaining or planning, learning and memory tasks.
Our modeling approach ranges from the construction of abstract cognitive models based on empirical findings, computational artificial intelligence algorithms that serve to describe psychophysical observations, and biophysically plausible neural population models used to model extracellular recordings.
