This seminar is part of a joint workshop within the Stockholm Trio-University of Tokyo collaboration

The session will address the information handling processing of the brain, from molecular mechanisms to how the brains functions in interactions with other humans or even robots. We will bring together neuroscientist, psychologist, engineers and medical doctors to discuss how the brain handles and stores information of it’s surrounding, how this processing can go wrong and how new techniques can enhance brain capabilities.

This seminar is part of a joint workshop within the Stockholm TRIO-Univeristy of Tokyo collaboration. You can find more info here:
