    Neural Coding

    Welcome to neuralcoding.nl. We are an interdisciplinary team of artificial intelligence and cognitive neuroscience researchers at Radboud University, Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Our research combines neural coding with deep learning to develop models of neural computation in silico with artificial neural networks and in vivo with neuroimaging. tl;dr: ❤️=🤖+🧠.
