Raul Vicente emailicon
Yet another physicist turned to neuroscientist. After 7 years at the Max-Planck Institute for Brain Research, where I tried to learn some biology, I moved to Tartu to learn the other side of the story (the computational perspective) and work towards bridging the two shores. I also have an interest for many aspects of Mathematics.

Kristjan Korjus emailicon
I graduated mathematics from the University of Manchester (UK) and the title of my thesis was ”Causality Measures in Neuroscience: Wiener-Granger causality and transfer entropy applied to intracranial EEG data”. At the moment I am doing my PhD in computer science, applying machine learning and other data mining techniques to brain data.

Ilya Kuzovkin emailicon
My interests wobble around Deep Learning and Machine Learning, Neuroscience and Brain-Computer Interfaces. These topics have known and unknown intersection points and my task is to study the known ones and look for the unknown ones.

Tambet Matiisen emailicon
I’m interested in multi-modal artificial neural networks, that tie together vision, language and sound. I’m also interested in bringing deep learning to practice, for example making the decisions of neural networks understandable.

Madis Vasser emailicon
After completing my psychology MSc thesis on the topic of Change Blindness in virtual reality I have infiltrated the group as a computer science PhD student, spending most of my time in the computer graphics and virtual reality lab. There I study the predictive coding brain theory.

Daniel Majoral emailicon
I graduated in physics and did a master in physics of complex systems. Now after being fooled by the AI hype I’m a computer science PhD student. Currently I’m applying deep learning to biological data.
