 Adi Mizrahi, The Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

One of the overarching goal in our lab is to understand cortical plasticity in adult circuits. This goal remains challenging because cortical neurons are functionally heterogeneous and access to specific active neurons for further experimentation is limited. In the primary auditory cortex (A1), for example, spiking responses to natural stimuli like vocalization cannot be easily predicted from...   More >

Special Analysis Seminar: Semiclassical resolvent estimates and wave decay in low regularity

Seminar | June 14 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Jacob Shapiro, Purdue University

 Department of Mathematics

We study weighted resolvent bounds for semiclassical Schrödinger operators. When the potential function is Lipschitz with long range decay, the resolvent norm grows exponentially in the inverse semiclassical parameter $h$. When the potential belongs to $L^\infty $ and has compact support, the resolvent norm grows exponentially in $h^{-4/3}\log (h^{-1})$. This extends the works of Burq,...   More >

Optimal sensors in random environments

The efficient coding hypothesis has revolutionized theoretical neuroscience. I would argue that it is best understood using rate-distortion theory. I use rate-distortion theory to inspire a simple model of sensory adaptation. In randomly drawn, fluctuating environments, this model suggests that neurogenesis in sensory regions is unnecessary and predicts that biological sensors are poised to just...   More >

An attempt to use Thompson’s groups as local scale transformations on quantum spin chains led to the discovery of some geometrically defined unitary group representations. In particular for the same quantum spin chains that gave rise to the Jones polynomial via the braid groups, an alternative history would allow it to arise from the Thompson group.
