Lisbon Reinforcement Learning and Neuroscience Course

November 26-30 2012Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown 

Since the 1990s, Reinforcement Learning has been pivotal in providing ideas for models of learning and decision making.
The most successful example is the understanding the activity of phasic dopaminergic neurons, but there are many more neural and behavioral applications. 
It is the aim of this course to give the foundations of the models, with a hands-on approach, while making the connection to relevant concepts in psychology and neuroscience.
