The brain is made up of vast numbers of neurons, and each neuron may be connected with many thousands of other neurons. Basic neuroscience has taught us a great deal about the workings of the individual neurons, about the mechanisms that allow one neuron to communicate with other neurons, about the processes by which neurons develop and adapt, and about the processes that regulate the functioning of individual neurons.

But how does all this neural activity give rise to human thought?

An emerging trend in neuroscience is to design investigations about how the brain works as a problem of brain decoding. Neuroimaging techniques such as functional MRI,

magnetoencephalography (MEG) and EEG allow to record brain activity from a subject while exposed to stimuli following a stimulation protocol. The brain decoding challenge

is to recognize a relation between these neural correlates and different categories of stimuli. The aim of proposed event is focused on practical experiences on brain decoding techniques The goal of brain decoding is to establish if we can accurately predict the category of the stimulus experienced by the subject from the brain activity response pattern and this will lead to important implications in research activity.
