Integrating direct brain recordings in cognitive neuroscience: Bridges from neurons to behaviour

 

Time and Location

Tuesday, 22nd November, 2011, 10.00-17.00

MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit,

15, Chaucer Road, CB2 7EF, Cambridge, UK

 

Description

In this 1-day workshop, speakers will discuss the role of direct brain recordings from humans and non-human primates in cognitive neuroscience. A central question is how these data can advance our understanding of cognition and behaviour beyond other methods.

University of Oxford, UK

“Dynamic population coding in prefrontal cortex in single neurons”

 

Matias Ison

University of Leicester, UK

"Building Memories: Sparse Coding and Remapping of Neuronal Responses in the Human Brain"

 

Florian Mormann

University of Bonn, Germany

“Single neuron correlates of perception in the human medial temporal lobe”

 

Nikolai Axmacher

University of Bonn, Germany

"Investigating the mechanisms of memory with intracranial EEG"

 

Rik Henson

MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge, UK

“Intracranial EEG data from Hippocampus and Rhinal Cortex in a Memory paradigm: Dissociations as a function of latency, and Dynamic Causal Modelling”

 

Anil Seth

University of Sussex, UK

“Causal density and integrated information as measures of conscious level:  The potential for application to iEEG”

 

Scientific Organisers:

Tristan Bekinschtein and Bernhard Staresina

John Duncan
