Symposium: Thalamocortical Interactions

November 21 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Thalamocortical Interactions: A symposium in honor of the publication ‘The Brain as a Tool: A Neuroscientist’s Account’ by Ray Guillery
Tuesday 21 November @ 2pm7pm (Sherrington Library, DPAG)

We are thrilled to co-host an international symposium on thalamocortical interactions in honour of Ray Guillery and his very last publication “The Brain as a Tool: A Neuroscientist’s Account” with international guest speakers Guillermina López-Bendito and Francisco Clasca.

2:00 – 2:05 Zoltán Molnár, Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford. Introduction

2:05 – 2:50 Francisco Clasca, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Madrid, Spain. “Axonal and synaptic structure diversity of the thalamocortical system”

3:00 – 3:10 Anna Mitchell, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford. “Mediodorsal thalamus and prefrontal cortex interactions in cognition”

3:15 – 3:25 Tim J. Viney, Department of Pharmacology, University of Oxford. “Subcortical modulation of hippocampal corticocortical circuits”

3:30 – 3:40 Kouichi C. Nakamura, MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit, University of Oxford. “Alterations in brain state-dependent spontaneous firing activities of neutrons in the motor thalamus of Parkinsonian rats”

– Coffee Break –

4:15 – 4:25 Tommas Ellender, Department of Pharmacology, University of Oxford. “Neural progenitors: a link between cortical neurons and thalamic input?”

4:30 – 4:40 Sebastian Vásquez-López, Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford. “Thalamic input to auditory cortex is locally heterogeneous but globally tonotopic”

4:45 – 4:55 Michael Lohse, Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford. “Somatosensory-auditory interactions in auditory thalamus”

5:00 – 5:10 Anna Hoerder-Suabedissen and Shuichi Hayashi, Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford. “Layer 6b projections to thalamus”
