Adrian Seminar – "Functional synaptic architecture of visual cortex" – David Fitzpatrick, Research Group Leader & Scientific Director, Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience

February 26 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The Hodgkin Huxley Seminar Room, Department of Physiology Development and Neuroscience

The pioneering work of Hubel and Wiesel defined the fundamental challenge in understanding the functional organization of visual cortex: How do cortical circuits transform the information supplied by different populations of retinal ganglion cells into coherent representations of the visual world? Their demonstration of emergent properties of cortical circuits such as selectivity for the orientation of edges, and an orderly columnar architecture for orientation preference set the stage for a host of studies that have addressed the circuit mechanisms responsible…

How is visual perception biased – Dr Floris de Lange, Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior, Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands

March 2 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Ground Floor Lecture Theatre, Department of Psychology

Abstract: Sensory signals are highly structured in both space and time. These regularities allow expectations about future stimulation to be formed, thereby facilitating perceptual decisions about visual features and objects. In my talk, I will discuss recent data that elucidate how temporal and spatial context change sensory computations in the visual system and modify perception and post-perceptual decision-making. I will also compare the effects of time and space with the effects of learnt statistical regularities on the neural and behavioral…
