Brain Matters #6 - Sensory processing: visual brain circuits
The webinar will feature Human Brain Project researchers who were recently selected to present posters at the Neuroscience 2021 virtual conference organized by the Society for Neuroscience (SfN)!
- Tao Yao (KU Leuven) is a postdoctoral researcher working on high cognitive function.
- Eline Mergan (KU Leuven) is a doctoral student whose work explores face perception in the prefrontal cortex of macaque monkeys.
- Jerome Herpers (KU Leuven) studies the effects of artificial stimulation of the ventral tegmental area (VTA) on visual plasticity and behaviour.
- Xiaolian Li (KU Leuven) is a PhD student of neuroscience whose research focuses on the study of the brain, particularly using high-resolution fMRI for high cognitive functions.
The session will be moderated by Mavi-Sanchez Vives, MD PhD, ICREA Research Professor and leader of Systems Neuroscience at the Institute of Biomedical Research August Pi Sunyer in Barcelona, Spain.
