|Morning session: 7:30am--10:30am|
|7:30-7:50||Introduction and overview of FMRI concepts and terminology||John-Dylan Haynes|
|7:50-8:10||Overview of decoding of mental states and processes||Tom Mitchell|
|8:10-8:40||Implications of decoding for theories of neural representation||James Haxby|
|8:50-9:20||Sampling of neural topographies by voxels/Comparing neural and perceptual information||John-Dylan Haynes|
|9:20-9:40||Challenges and limitations in interpreting learnt classifiers||Francisco Pereira|
Which novel conclusions about cognitive processing does fMRI-decoding allow us to draw?
How can decoding be used to understand the flow of information through the human brain?
|Afternoon session: 3:30pm--7:30pm|
|3:30-3:50||Exploring human object-vision with hi-res fMRI and information-based analysis||Nikolaus Kriegeskorte|
|3:50-4:10||Spatiotemporal classification||Janaina Mourao-Miranda|
Can we use classifiers as "confirmatory" tools allowing the testing of competing hypotheses about structure in the data?
Is there a continuum between that and their "exploratory" use to find structure?
