Call for Paper for Special Session on
Computationally Intelligent Methods in Neural Information Processing
at the IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (IEEE WCCI) 2016
Organized by: Mufti Mahmud 1-4, €, Amir Hussain 4, 5, £
The brain, being the most complex organ in human body, is specialized to process information simultaneously coming from many different sources. The neurons work as basic information processing units in the brain and interconnect to each other to form hierarchical and/or parallel pathways. These pathways are mainly involved in transforming information originated from one or more sources into either action (as in motor movements) or specialized information understood by the brain itself (as in cognitive functions).
The focus of this special session is to address the recent advances in computationally intelligent techniques in processing neural information. Developing intelligent methods capable of deciphering brain’s information processing capability is one the biggest challenges in brain research. The objective of this special session is to provide updated information and a forum for the scientists and researchers who are looking for more relevant information in decoding brain
functions using expert and computationally intelligent systems.
Ø Computationally intelligent tools for analysis of Spikes, LFP, EEG, MEG, MRI/fMRI, PET, and fNIRS;
Ø Computationally intelligent methods for modeling and estimating neural signals;
Ø Computational intelligence in developing smart BMI and neural prosthesis;
Ø Biologically inspired methods for pattern analysis in neuronal signals;
Ø Machine learning methods applied to brain research.
