New work by Ke Jia et al on a step-by-step protocol for Ultra-high field imaging in the human brain.

1 April 2021

Ultra-high field (UHF) neuroimaging affords the sub-millimeter resolution that allows researchers to interrogate brain computations at a finer scale than that afforded by standard fMRI techniques. Here, we present a step-by-step protocol for using UHF imaging (Siemens Terra 7T scanner) to measure activity in the human...

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

Adaptive Brain Lab open for volunteer studies

22 September 2020

We are very pleased to announce that the Adaptive Brain Lab is now open and invites volunteers for studies. We have reviewed and implemented government and University guidance, and have updated our procedures to create a COVID secure testing environment. Our procedures are carefully designed in order to mitigate against...

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...
