Emergent Scientists Seminar Series: “Neural Coding in the Auditory Cortex”

July 17, 2020 @ 16:00 - 18:30

We are happy to announce the launch of a new format for our "Emergent Scientists Seminar Series". In this renovated format, we will feature online talks by two PhD students at the end of their doctorate or postdocs in their very first years, from Oxford but also any other university, to present their research on a specific topic in Neuroscience. The first “Emergent Scientists Seminar” will be on Friday, 17th July at 4 pm, focused on the Neural Coding in the…

Basal ganglia output pathways for selection amongst incompatible actions

October 15, 2020 @ 14:00 - 16:30

Talk with prof. Bernardo Sabatini from Harvard Medical School Time and date: Thursday, 15th October 2020, Online Talk at 2 pm BST, Virtual Pub Chat at 3.15pm Abstract: In the basal ganglia (BG), anatomically segregated and topographically-organized feedforward circuits are thought to modulate multiple behaviors in parallel. Inherent in this model is the assumption that there is a correspondence between anatomically and functionally defined circuits within and through the BG. Furthermore, layered on this model is the proposal that the direct and indirect pathways…

Information Storage in Memory Engrams

January 22 @ 16:00 - 17:00

Talk with Prof Tomás Ryan Time and date: January 22, 2021, 4 PM GMT Prof. Tomás Ryan is working on mechanisms of memory storage and recall at the circuit level using novel technologies and multidisciplinary, collaborative approaches. His research integrates the theoretical models and techniques of experimental psychology, behavioural neuroscience, electrophysiology, and molecular genetics. The ultimate goal of this research is to reveal something of how the brain stores, modifies, and recalls our memories' records of past experience, and how…
