2017 Lamport Lecture – Gilles Laurent @ T-739 HSB
Nov 2 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Evolution and brain computation

I will introduce our work towards identifying principles of brain function and computation, focused on using comparative approaches and exploiting unusual model systems (reptiles, cephalopods) to study sleep, texture perception and cerebral cortex evolution.

2018 Hille Lecture – Doris Tsao @ HSB T-747
May 3 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Faces: a neural Rosetta stone

Objects constitute the fundamental currency of the brain: they are things that we perceive, remember, and think about.  One of the most important objects for a primate is a face. Research on the macaque face patch system in recent years has given us a remarkable window into the detailed processes underlying object recognition. I will discuss recent findings from our lab elucidating the code for facial identity used by cells in face patches. I will then discuss how this code is used by downstream areas, as well as how the brain computes what constitutes an object in the first place.
