The Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience will be hosting its first Research Day. This will be a chance to start the new academic year by getting re-acquainted with each other and the diversity of research conducted by CTN core and affiliate faculty. The format will be to have a number of CTN faculty share short overviews of their lab's and projects (15:00-16:00) and then, following a short coffee break (16:00-16:30), hear from a dozen current graduate students and post-docs giving short three minute talks on an aspect of their current research (16:30-17:30).
Join us for a talk by Morris Moscovitch of the University of Toronto.
"The Cognitive Neuroscience of Recent and Remote Event and Spatial Memory"
Memories are dynamic and interactive. Their representations are influenced by time and experience. I will present evidence on the nature of the changing representations and their neural correlates, show how event and spatial memory interact with one another, and propose a neurocognitive model of hippocampal-neocortical interactions that may account for the evidence.
Join us for a talk by Xaq Pitkow of Rice University.
"Rational thoughts in neural codes"
Please join us for a talk with Prof. Wilten Nicola of the University of Calgary.
