Jonathan Pillow to give tutorial at NIPS conference
Posted: December 8, 2011
Assistant Professor Jonathan Pillow is scheduled to give a two-hour tutorial on December 12 at the 2011 Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) Conference in Granada, Spain. The NIPS Foundation is a non-profit corporation whose purpose is to foster the exchange of research on neural information processing systems in their biological, technological, mathematical, and theoretical aspects. Tutorials are usually given by highly regarded and well-known scientists, so the invitation to Dr. Pillow to speak is quite an honor.
Dr. Pillow's research involves statistical methods for understanding the neural code in single neurons and neural populations. His lab works closely with experimentalists to identify the neural computations underlying sensory, cognitive, and motor behaviors. Title of tutorial: Flexible, Multivariate Point Process Models for Unlocking the Neural Code.
