Duke Neurobiology Invited Seminar: David Fitzpatrick: Functional organization and development of cortical representations: Rethinking what we thought we knew


David Fitzpatrick

Dr. Fitzpatrick was named Chief Executive Officer and Scientific Director of the Max Planck Florida Institute on January 3, 2011. Prior to his arrival in Jupiter, Fitzpatrick was the James B. Duke Professor of Neurobiology at the Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, NC, and Director of the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences. His scientific contributions have earned him international recognition as a leader in systems neuroscience, with a focus on the functional organization and development of neural circuits in the cerebral cortex - the largest and most complex area of the brain, whose functions include sensory perception, motor control, and cognition.
