Carlos Brody - Neural Circuit Mechanisms Underlying Cognition in Rats

I will describe studies of the neural bases of cognitive processes. Rodents, mostly rats, are trained to perform behaviors that lend themselves to quantitative modeling that can help identify and…

John Serences - Simultaneous Representation of Sensory and Mnemonic Information in Human Visual Cortex

Navigating through complex environments requires keeping relevant information in mind, or in working memory, while simultaneously processing new sensory inputs. For example, when frantically looking…
