Short Description of the Department

Research Goals of Neural Information ProcessingThe Neural Information

Processing Department pursues the following research goals:

  • Interpretation and understanding of neuroscientific data.
  • Understanding the function of the brain, in terms of underlying information processing principles
  • Technical use of these information processing principles in artificial neural networks.
  • Integration of artificial neural networks into modern hardware and software systems.

Achieving these goals requires a high degree of interdisciplinary work. This is reflected in the following subdivisions of neural information processing research:

  • Biological Mechanisms of Neural Information Processing,
  • Theory of Neural Information Processing,
  • Applications of Neural Information Processing.
