Dynamic Algorithmic Networks of Visual Categorizations

In cognitive neuroscience, a pivotal remaining challenge is the translation of brain activity into comprehensible information processing. Though sophisticated tools measure brain activity with exceptional spatial and temporal resolution, across varying scales of observation, how do we interpret this activity as a process that computes information? To address this critical question, I will introduce a framework that leverages generative models of visual categories to enable interpretation of the information that brain networks represent and transmit, and the computations that underlie perception. Using this approach, we can extract meaningful insights into information processing from dynamic brain activity and its Deep Neural Network models, thereby pushing the frontiers of brain imaging and computational neuroscience.
