Human cognitive neuroscience seminar

Speaker: Ed Silson (University of Edinburgh)

Title: Retinotopy as a ubiquitous scaffold for human cognition

Summary: This seminar will come in two parts: In the first, I'd like to walk you through a very recent paper of mine that came out earlier this month in Nature Neuroscience, which explores the neural mechanism linking visual perception with memory. In the second, I'll describe some analyses that Catriona Scrivener (postdoc in my lab) and I have been doing to try and improve the correspondence between convolutional neural networks and brain responses.


The seminars are organised by the Human Cognitive Neuroscience research group. For further information, or if you would like to join the e-mail list for these seminars, please email Ed Silson.
