“Neural Circuits Controlling the Selection and Persistence of Visual Information”
Thursday, March 8, 2018 - 4:00pm

Hosted by:

Neuroscience Seminar Series

The processing of sensory input is influenced by a number of factors, such as arousal, stimulus saliency, and selective attention. These factors shape the processing of sensory information needed to guide adaptive behavior. This talk will discuss recent studies aimed at identifying the neural circuitry controlling the modulation and filtering of sensory information in the primate visual system, and its relation to mechanisms of other basic cognitive functions such as working-memory.
