Neuroinformatics Group at University of Helsinki

Neuroinformatics is widely defined as the cross-fertilization of information-processing and mathematical sciences on the one hand, and neural and cognitive sciences on the other.

Our group works on different aspects of neuroinformatics related to machine learning:

  • We apply machine learning models on neuroimaging data, in particular MEG.
  • We model the visual system in the brain by analyzing the statistical structure of the natural input images.
  • We develop the relevant theory of statistical machine learning, typically unsupervised.

The group is located at U Helsinki and at the Gatsby Unit, UCL
