 Neuroscience Seminar Series 

Learning Objectives:
1) Why current Hebbian models of plasticity are insufficient for understanding human intelligence.
2) Why deep learning from AI should inform our understanding of learning in the real brain.
3) Pyramidal neurons in the neocortex are well adapted for implementing deep learning algorithms.

Please note that OHRI seminars are open to all members of OHRI and partner institutions. Members of the general public are asked to contact the communications office (613-737-8899 x 73325; for more information about the research presented at OHRI seminars.
