BEACON Seminar: Robust encoding of abstract rules by distinct neuronal populations in primate visual cortex
Tirin Moore, Stanford University
BEACON Seminar Series
Tuesday, 09 March 2021, 4pm to 5pm
Hosted by Alon Baram
Seminars this term will be held remotely on Zoom. Links for joining will be sent out before each seminar.
I will discuss our recent evidence showing that information about abstract rules can be decoded from neuronal activity in primate visual cortex even in the absence of sensory stimulation. Furthermore, that rule information is greatest among neurons with the least visual activity and the weakest coupling to local neuronal networks. In addition, I will talk about recent developments in large-scale neurophysiological techniques in nonhuman primates.
The host for this seminar is Alon Baram. Please contact him if you would like to set up a remote meeting with a speaker.
If you have suggestions for future speakers, please contact Lauren Burgen (DPAG) , Nima Khalighinejad (EP), or Nick Myers (EP).
