Neural Circuit Mechanisms of Rapid Associative Learning: Redwood Seminar

Seminar: Redwood Seminar | November 6 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Aaron Milstein, Stanford University School of Medicine, Dept. of Neurosurgery

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

How do neural circuits in the brain accomplish rapid learning? When foraging for food in a previously unexplored environment, animals store memories of landmarks based on as few as one single view. Also, animals remember landmarks and navigation decisions that eventually lead to food, which requires that the brain associate events with delayed outcomes. I will present evidence that a particular...   More >

Humans and other advanced animals have a remarkable ability to interpret incoming sensory stimuli and plan task-appropriate behavioral responses. This talk will present parallel experimental and computational approaches aimed at understanding how visual feature encoding in upstream sensory cortical areas is transformed across the cortical hierarchy into more flexible task-related encoding in the...   More >
