Talks from the ESF workshop on

"Noise in decision making: theory meets experiment"
(May 2013, Sant Fruitós de Bages, Catalonia, Spain)

are available online at: https://www.youtube.com/user/CRMatematica

Speakers include: Matthias Bethge, Anne Churchland, Albert Compte,
Bruce Cumming, Gustavo Deco, Sophie Devève, Ralf Haefner, Christian

The two driving questions of the meeting were:

1. What is the origin of variability in brain activity (contributions
from external inputs, synaptic and neural mechanisms, micro-circuit
dynamics, global brain states, etc.)?

2. What is the role, if any, of neuronal variability in decision
making / perception / behavior?
