Functional Roles of Neuromodulatory Systems

A Tutorial Presented By Nicolas Oros

The role of neuromodulatory systems is critical in cognitive functions, specifically to regulate attention and encode memories. In this tutorial, I will give an introduction to the different neuromodulatory systems present in the brain. I will talk about the different events that can trigger them, how they can modulate neural activity and I will show you some computational models of these systems and how they can be used in a neural network controlling a robot.
