Computational Modelling of Brain and Behaviour Journal Club

This journal club has meetings between 11:00 and 12:00 on Thursday mornings. The focus is on topics within neuroscience and psychology requiring computational modelling in general.

There have been a wide range of topics covered, including modelling of behaviour and functional brain activation, but also theoretical models of brain function, clinical applications, and related topics.  Below are several of the topics which are discussed:

Behavioural Modelling

  • Reinforcement learning
  • Neuroeconomics
  • Perceptual decision making

Theoretical Models of Brain Function

  • Predictive Coding
  • Bayesian Brain Hypothesis

Clinical Applications

  • Computational Psychiatry


  • Machine learning
  • Bayesian Statistics
  • AI

Members of the group are assigned weeks at the start of each cycle through the group list, and each week, one person presents an article of their choosing, which they mail to everyone at least a few days in advance. The schedule can be viewed here
