Hi 👋 I'm Benedikt Ehinger. I am a 🧠 Computational Cognitive Science assistant professor, "hobby"-statistician, teacher, father.

I work with Lab/VR/Mobile EEG, Eye-Tracking, behavioral methods, cognitive modelling.

I'm here for science-related things (e.g. promoting blog posts, answering questions, promoting papers), meta-science, and climate change.

this is cool: A mix of experiment and explorative explanations, embedded in the context of and a sprinkle of robust statistics / outlier.

How random are you?

My name is Alex Hernandez-Garcia and I am currently a postdoc at Mila, the Québec AI Institute, and the Université de Montréal. I work with professors Yoshua Bengio and David Rolnick on applications of machine learning for scientific discoveries to fight climate change.

I grew up in Madrid (Spain) and did my PhD in Berlin and Osnabrück (Germany) working at the intersection of deep learning and computational neuroscience.

It's wonderful to be here and see some action!

hi new users! this is a reminder that mastodon's culture is NOT the same as twitter's-- you're entering a community, not a void, and we're reading your posts and want to interact with you

please don't treat this place as "twitter but with a new ui." the influx has been overwhelming for some of us who've been around for a while, we're happy to see new faces but please be considerate of the people around you as you join this space. thank u

also pay @bgcarlisle so they can upgrade the masto server to deal with how many new users are here now patreon.com/theresearchfairy

Hi, i'm Ronny, working at NTNU, Trondheim, doing numerical mathematics and optimisation on Riemannian manifolds.

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

Our lab mascot polpo (with help of ... corona?) found the easteregg!

A bit late, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hi, I'm Tom. I'm a professor at the TU , Centre for Cognitive Science, studying visual perception using behavioural experiments, eye tracking, and computational models.

I'm here for science-related things.

Short blogpost on modelling circular predictors (angles, color, ...).

Here I am using circular spline regression and show the difference to "normal" splines.

It's implemented in unfoldtoolbox.org for EEG/timeseries!

Here is a quick thread about tools and methods I use for research, maybe some of you will find them useful. I'll try to update it as I find new things.

Let's start with a game changer: the method

If you don't know it, give it a try. It really revolutionized my way of learning and doing research. As an user, I'm using , but I know that is also excellent

Hi everyone, my name is Tim and I'm a professor for (neuro-inspired) machine learning at the institute of cognitive science (University of Osnabrück). Let's figure out the brain together!

I am here to chat about ways in which we can understand and create intelligent behavior using tools from machine learning and cognitive computational neuroscience, plus academia and science in general.

Should I try to publish some computational modeling work on social interaction in Consciousness and Cognition? Yay or nay? What is your experience?

is really cool. I love that broadcasting works inside dicts as well!
