Sparse Deep Predictive Coding: A Model of Visual Perception

Seminar: Redwood Seminar | February 5 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Victor Boutin, Institute of Neuroscience of la Timone (INT), Aix-Marseille University

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

Building models to efficiently represent images is a central problem in the machine learning community. The brain and especially the visual cortex, has long find economical and robust solutions to solve such a problem. At the local scale, Sparse Coding is one of the most successful framework to model neural computation in the visual cortex. It directly derives from the efficient coding...   More >

A novel blood volume and perfusion contrast for laminar fMRI in humans at 7T

Seminar: Neuroscience Seminar | February 10 | 4-5 p.m. | 125 Li Ka Shing Center

 Yuhui Chai, NIMH

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

With increased availability of ultra-high field (7T) human MRI scanners, fMRI spatial resolution has been pushed to the sub-millimeter domain, making it possible to resolve functional activity and connectivity across cortical depths/layers. Despite the great potential of laminar fMRI research in humans, its widespread application is tempered by technical constraints: (1) The gradient-echo...   More >
