IRP on the Mathematics of Memory (MathMem)

January 16 to March 10, 2017

General information
The goal of this intensive research program is to push the boundaries of theoretical work on memory formation, consolidation and recall in humans and non-human animals. We aim to do this by 1. Bringing together top theoretical researchers working on models of memory, 2. Providing an in-depth introduction to memory science and a review of previous theoretical work in an open, relaxed school-like forum which will be open to student and young researchers, and 3. Exploring current challenges in memory science where theory and experiment meet. This last point will involve lectures by top researchers on their own cutting-edge work, as well as discussion sessions emphasizing brain storming and planting the seeds for future collaboration. We will invite both theoretical and experimental researchers.
