Journal/methods meeting 2020

At the moment, meetings will be arranged online. Let Christoph know if you want to join.

What: Weekly meeting of the DNHI lab to discuss relevant methods and papers

When: Tuesdays at 2 pm

Where: Building W34 Office 208

Who: Everybody is invited to listen and contribute. Currently, our lab meetings are held together with Helen Blank’s group

Current topics include:

* Model fitting (e.g., different procedures, posterior predictive checks, confusion matrices)

* Specific types of models (i.e., mostly reinforcement learning and Markov decision processes)

* Cooperation research (exemplary and overview papers)

* Game theory (basics, mathematical approaches, recent papers)

* Cognitive social (neuro)science (exemplary and overview papers)

* Neuroscience of physical and conceptual spaces (exemplary and overview papers)

* Open science/reproducibility

* Academic writing
