Bryan Research 103

Our group seeks to understand why the brain contains particular codes, how the architecture and dynamics of neural circuits shape such codes, and how coding states evolve to perform computations that unfold over time. We are specifically interested in questions of learning, memory, integration,... read more about Neurobiology Invited Seminar Series »

Bryan Research 301

Ila Fiete is an Associate Professor in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences and the McGovern Institute at MIT. Her group seeks to understand why the brain contains particular codes, how the architecture and dynamics of neural circuits shape such codes, and how neural circuit dynamics... read more about Cognitive maps for navigation in the brain: Simultaneous rigidity and flexibility through modularity »


Friday, April 10, 2020 - 12:00pm
LSRC - DIBS B035 Multipurpose Room

CCN Colloquium Series. Dr. Hakimi is a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at DIBS. Her work with CCN Director Alison Adcock examines how motivational context influences individual learning and decision making. Using computational modeling and a multimodal approach in... read more about Feedback Learning across Multiple Timescales »

Bryan Research 103

Gina Turrigiano studies mechanisms of homeostatic synaptic plasticity and the role of these stabilizing mechanisms in the development and function of the cortex. Her work has been instrumental in demonstrating the existance of "self-tuning" mechanisms that allow neurons and circuits to adjust their... read more about Neurobiology Invited Seminar Series »


Sneha Mantri sits in the middle of the table with 5 participants surrounding her as she talks about Narrative Medicine. The whiteboard behind her says, "Welcome to a Narrative Medicine Workshop with neurolgist, Dr. Sneha Mantri."
Wednesday, April 15, 2020 - 11:30am

What makes a good physician? A person who properly diagnoses and then cures their patients? What if we told you that there's a third vital characteristic of good physicians -- physicians who listen to -- and attempt to understand their patients' stories. Similar observations have been made about... read more about Narrative Medicine Workshop with Dr. Sneha Mantri »

Bryan Research 103

My goal is to understand the function of neuronal circuits. By "circuit" I mean a brain structure with many neurons that has some anatomical and functional identity and exchanges signals with other brain circuits. Most of our work has focused on the retina and the olfactory bulb, with some... read more about The Ruth K. Broad Foundation Seminar Series on Neurobiology and Disease »
