BEACON Seminar: “I like the way you sing” – Neural systems for vocal perception
Catherine Perrodin (UCL)
BEACON Seminar Series
Tuesday, 02 March 2021, 1pm to 2pm
Hosted by Katharina Matke-Bauer
Seminars this term will be held remotely on Zoom. Links for joining will be sent out before each seminar.
Effectively interpreting each other’s communication sounds is essential for social interactions and survival. My research utilises male-female courtship interactions in mice to study the perception and processing of complex vocal sequences. In my talk I will present recent work based on natural behaviour that highlights the importance of temporal patterns in vocal communication. I will then talk about ongoing work investigating the neuronal substrates supporting vocal sequence processing.
The hosts for this seminar are Katharina Matke-Bauer and Nick Myers. If you would like to meet Catherine on the day of the talk, please get in touch with Nick.
If you have suggestions for future speakers, please contact Lauren Burgen (DPAG) , Nima Khalighinejad (EP), or Nick Myers (EP).
