Seminar in Maternal Infant Relationship Studies: Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence****

**

March 7 and 9, 2020 | 9:00 am to 5:00 pm | ICBS, UFRGS, Porto Alegre, Brazil Hosts: Débora Czarnabay, Grace Pardo and, Enver Oruro Description Determine the neural pathways by which the nervous system of the neonates establish attachment with their mothers is a problem that has motivated hypothesis and experiments at several scale levels, from neurotransmission to ethological level. Goals 1. Provide an understanding of the neural basis of the mother-infant attachment and show the use of the computational modeling for unified hypothesis tests at different scale levels. 2. Identify strategic questions that can be studied using the modeling and computational simulation approach 3. Discuss challenges and a roadmap for the integration of experimental studies and complex system simulation. 4. Explore future convergence scenarios for neuroscience and artificial intelligence through the construction of theoretical framework and realistic models in computational neuroscience Previous events 2015: e-session on Neuroscience and Behavior - UNESCO UniTwin CS-DC’15.
