Welcome to FOM Summer School

Our worldclass instructors are offering courses in the foundations of cognition and consciousness studies, signal processing or “outer empiricism” for neuroscience,  techniques and sociophilosophical issues in AI, quantum mind and neurodynamics.

In addition the computational neuroscience course is going to introduce techniques from physics of the harmonic oscillator through dynamical systems in general.
