Nowadays we can study the brain in many different ways. On one hand we have tools for studying the brain structure in-vivo (such as CT, MRI), and on the other hand, we have many tools for studying brain function (fMRI, PET, EEG, MEG, single cell physiology, etc). Many of these methods are complementary, meaning that their combination is very beneficial. During the seminar, a short overview of the different methods will be presented. Then there will be a discussion of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) in humans and non-human primates and Single-cell recording in non-human primates.
Note: this event is a part of the Natural and Artificial Cognitive Systems Seminar, so if you plan to come please come early so we can ensure seating.
