    Target group: For graduate and PhD students in the field of experimental/mathematical Psychology, Neuroscience, AI, Computer Science, Neuroeconomics or similar subject.

    Have you ever wondered how to fit a model to your behavioral data? The Amsterdam Center for Brain & Cognition (ABC) is organizing a 1½ day workshop with the aim to introduce cognitive mathematical models of decision making and their application. International and national speakers will discuss why the model-based approach is useful and attractive in both the cognitive and neuroscientific field. Topics will range from the theoretical background of several sequential sampling models to their application in neuroimaging studies. The course is particularly designed for PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and anyone how takes an interest in getting more out of their behavioral data.
