Emergence of organization and computation in neural circuits


Prof. Dr. Julijana Gjorgjieva 

Assistant Professor in Computational Neuroscience, Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, Technical University of Munich

The emergence of organization and computation in neural circuits 

How neural circuits become organized during early postnatal development based on patterns of spontaneous activity and different plasticity mechanisms. Prof. Julijana will show the emergence of organization at the sub-cellular and cellular level and discuss implications for computations implemented by these networks. These theoretical models and simulations are supported by experimental data and make numerous predictions for future experiments.

(ONOS seminar) Unraveling cortical circuits for perceptual decision making


OIST Neuroscience Online Seminar (ONOS)

Prof. Seung-Hee Lee, Associate Professor, Sensory Processing Lab, KAIST

Unraveling cortical circuits for perceptual decision making

Sensory information is a key environmental cue that makes animals guide their behavior. However, it is still unclear how cortical circuits permit appropriate responses to relevant sensory stimuli while inhibiting others. Here, we unraveled cortical circuits that are important for perceptual decision-making in mice performing Go/No-go tasks. We identified parietal and frontal circuits that show unique properties in integrating sensory information and guide action decisions. I will discuss how these circuits work in concert for animals to perform proper action decisions upon the sensory evidence.
