E12228: Understanding IQ with Computational Neuroscience in Spark 2018 (Mar. 17 - 18, 2018)
Intelligence plays a role in our daily lives, but much controversy exists around defining intelligence. Nonetheless, IQ testing is an important and widespread clinical practice for diagnosing disease and tracking recovery. In this course, we'll try to define intelligence, then use computational neuroscience to examine how an "intelligent" brain might behave. We'll see concepts at the foundation of psychology, neuroscience, computation, and image processing!
