Machine Learning for Neural & Behavioral Data Analysis

The MLC brings together researchers in the field of machine learning and experimental scientists to discuss recent developments and a wide range of data analysis topics in the neuro- and behavioral sciences. It is a relatively informal mixture of journal club, methodological discussions, data analysis issues, tutorials, informal presentations, and invited talks. Everybody with an interest in machine learning or on how to best tackle current challenges in data analysis is welcome to join, but should also bring an interest in actively contributing to the MLC."

Information for Participants

Dear Scientifically-Active and Interested Employees,


On Tuesdays, the Scientific Institute Colloquium takes place at the ZI with nationally and internationally-renowned speakers; the colloquium focuses on the main research areas of the individual working groups. Generally on the first Tuesday of each month, the SFB 636 invites designated experts from the individual fields of research to the lecture. (There could be last-minute changes due to the individuals’ schedules). In general, those who have issued the invitations are primarily responsible for looking after their guest and are the points of contact should there be questions on the content.

In the Current Events (see below), you can find information at any time on free dates/times, the already scheduled speakers, their lecture titles and the contact person/people. All employees of the Zl are warmly invited to attend these events!

The allocation of appointments for speakers should be agreed upon with the organizing team. You are always welcome to contact us with your own contributions or suggestions for external speakers. We would also like to appeal especially to our in-house junior scientists and invite you to report on your work. This can be done in twos or as a sole speaker, presenting topics or independent research in connection with pre-clinical and clinical subjects.

We look forward to new speakers with interesting lectures, an enthusiastic audience and new scientific discoveries from 2019!

Your Organizing Team, Dr. Melanie Fritz and Nicola Gerth
