Synaptic mechanisms of sensory perception

Professor Carl Petersen, from the Brain Mind Institute, Faculty of Life Sciences, EPFL, Switzerland, is visiting Cambridge and will be delivering a special research talk.  

Friday, 19th June 2009, 14:00 - 15:00

Hodgkin-Huxley Room, Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, Physiology Building, D Floor, Downing Site.

Professor Carl Petersen investigates synaptic mechanisms of sensory perception and associative learning, in particular cortical processing of sensory input focusing on the signalling pathway from the mystacial whiskers to the somatosensory barrel cortex. The goal is to understand coding, development and plasticity of perceptions at the level of individual neurons and their synaptic interactions within a well-defined signalling pathway.

This event is free to attend. Registration is not required.
