key note speakers
Prof. Florian Mormann is a Professor of Cognitive and Clinical Neurophysiology at the University of Bonn, Germany. Prof. Mormann is interested in the neurobiology of perception and memory; exploring neuronal behavior in the medial temporal lobe to understand how conscious percepts are transferred into episodic memory traces.
Dr Leila Reddy is a Researcher at the Brain and Cognition Research Center (CerCo), at the CNRS in Toulouse, France. Dr Reddy is interested in object representation and coding in visual cortex; using a number of techniques including psychophysics, fMRI and single unit recording in the human brain.
Prof. Rodrigo Quian Quiroga is the Director of the Centre for Systems Neuroscience and Head of Bio-engineering at the University of Leicester, UK. Prof. Quian Quiroga is interested in the study of the principles of visual perception and memory. He discovered what has been named "Concept cells" or "Jennifer Aniston neurons" - neurons in the human brain that play a key role in memory formation.
Dr Ueli Rutishauser is an Associate Professor at the Cedars-Sinai Medial Center in Los Angeles, USA. Dr Rutishauser investigates the neural mechanisms of learning, memory and decision-making at level of single neurons and networks thereof. He uses a combination of in-vivo, single-unit electrophysiology in humans, intracranial electrocorticography, eye tracking, electrical stimulation, behavior and computational, and theoretical approaches.
