Adaptive Brain Lab

 

New paper by Elisa Zamboni et al in eLife

11 November 2020

Exciting work in the lab using Laminar fMRI reveals that adaptive processing involves recurrent processing within visual cortex and top-down influences from posterior parietal cortex via feedback. https://doi.org/10.7554/eLife.57637 elife_figure_final_resized.png

New paper by Ke Jia et al in Current Biology

16 September 2020

Using high-field laminar fMRI, we show that learning alters orientation specific representations in superficial V1 layers and enhances connectivity from visual to parietal cortex, suggesting that recurrent visual plasticity and feedforward connectivity gate perceptual decision making. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2020.08...

New paper by Elisa Zamboni in BioRxiv May 2020

29 May 2020

New paper by Elisa Zamboni et al is availabe at BioRxiv in which we examine fine-scale computations for adaptive processing in the human brain. Adapting to the environment statistics by reducing brain responses to repetitive sensory information is key for efficient information processing. Yet, the fine-scale computations...

New paper by Ke Jia in BioRxiv May 2020

25 May 2020

New paper by Ke Jia et al is available in BioRxiv in which we show that 7T brain imaging reveals adaptive fine-scale circuits in the human brain. Learning and experience are critical for translating ambiguous sensory information from our environments to perceptual decisions. Yet, evidence on how training molds the adult...
