Projects Spotlight!

Monday, 12 September, 2016 - 12:00 to 13:30

All the projects will have 10 min and a few slides to present and discuss the state of the project.

This will be followed by a discussion on the projects integration for the final performance.


M. Kimmel, D. Hristova.The micro-phenomenology of embodied interaction expertise

Tuesday, 13 September, 2016 - 15:30 to 17:00

The talk surveys how to research sophisticated interaction skills in dance, martial arts, sports, bodywork, and related somatic skills. These domains involve variable repertoires, open task structure, and improvisation, yet also require actions to be precise and perfectly coordinated, while agents remain poised for multiple futures. The first part of the talk provides an overview of the demands such skills impose. Notably, constraints of motor control, dynamic interaction management, and improvised decision-making must be met simultaneously.

Xerxes D. Arsiwalla. Network Neuroscience: From Cognition, Disease to Therapy

Thursday, 8 September, 2016 - 12:00 to 13:30

In recent years, network neuroscience has emerged as a powerful new approach to address systems level questions related to brain functions, neurodegenerative diseases and novel therapies. Using ideas from network science, neurobiology and control engineering, we present recent work and challenges in modeling whole-brain dynamics, simulating disease networks and discuss emerging approaches for intervention.

Ivan Herreros. A theory of cerebellar anticipatory motor control.

Wednesday, 7 September, 2016 - 12:00 to 13:30

I will introduce the counter-factual predictive control (CFPC) approach, a control scheme that is both a theory of cerebellar function and a practical scheme that can be applied in robotics.

John-Dylan Haynes. Free will and the brain: Turning Libet upside down

Tuesday, 13 September, 2016 - 12:00 to 13:30

Room 52.015

Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin
