Models of the mind: how maths has shaped our understanding of the brain

External Event - 4th Mar 2021

Time - 7.00pm to 8.30pm

Our brain is a powerhouse, made up of 85 billion neurons and all connected by over 100 trillion synapses. How do you study something so intricate and powerful?  

Join computational neuroscientist Grace Lindsay as she explores how mathematical models have allowed scientists to understand and describe many of the brain's processes, in conversation with the Royal Institution. 

In this conversation, Grace will discuss how we’ve progressed from experimenting on frog legs to building the large models of artificial neural networks that form the basis of modern artificial intelligence.
