About the Event

Prediction errors often drive learning and other adaptive behaviors. Speakers will present research on mechanisms that detect and respond to these errors at the cellular and local-network level, the systems neuroscience level, and the behavioral level.

Event Speakers

Inhibitory Control and Prediction Errors
Angela Yu, University of California, San Diego

Multiple neural types of prediction errors, and multiple models for how they guide learning
Daniel Bullock, Boston University
