Semantic cortical maps are revealed by fMRI and natural narrative speech: Berkeley Ear Club

Colloquium | September 15 | 4-5:30 p.m. | 3105 Tolman Hall


Alex Huth, Gallant Lab, Psychology, UC Berkeley

Department of Psychology


Human beings have the unique and powerful ability to extract the meaning, or semantic content, from spoken language. Yet little is known about how different types of semantic information are represented in brain. I will present a new fMRI-based approach showing that the semantic information in natural speech is represented in complex cortical maps comprising dozens of semantically selective brain...   More >

Computational diversity and the mesoscale organization of the neocortex

Seminar: ICBS Seminar: Redwood Seminar | September 19 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall


Gary Marcus, New York University

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


The human neocortex participates in a wide range of tasks, yet superficially appears to adhere to a relatively uniform six-layered architecture throughout its extent. For that reason, much research has been devoted to characterizing a single "canonical" cortical computation, repeated massively throughout the cortex, with differences between areas presumed to arise from their inputs and outputs...   More >

Six degrees of spatial separation - The portal for auditory perception: Berkeley Ear Club

Colloquium | September 29 | 4-5:30 p.m. | 3105 Tolman Hall


Simon Carlile, Auditory Neuroscience Lab, School of Medical Sciences, Univ. of Sydney, Australia

Department of Psychology


Our perception of auditory space depends on the analysis of acoustic cues produced at each ear by the surrounding sound sources (reviews Carlile, 1996; Carlile et al., 2005). Despite more than a century of research, the nature of the representation underlying this perception remains the subject of much debate (Grothe et al., 2010; Ashida and Carr, 2011). Strong evidence indicates that the early...   More >
