BMI Circuits & Behavior Seminar // Gilles Laurent: Brain Circuit Dynamics in Action and Sleep


Event details

Date 03.12.2021 11:0012:00  
Speaker Gilles Laurent, Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Location Online
Category Conferences - Seminars
Event Language English
IMPORTANT NOTICE // In-person attendance of this seminar is subjected to some constraints:
  • Maximum number of participants is limited to 80
  • Valid COVID certificate and ID (e.g. Camipro card), required to enter the conference room, will be checked at the entrance
  • Face masks are mandatory for everyone in the seminar room (excepted the speaker while presenting)
Our group focuses on brain computation, physiology and evolution, with a particular focus on network dynamics, sleep (evolution and mechanistic underpinnings), cortical computation (through the study of ancestral cortices), and sensorimotor processing. This talk will describe our recent results on the remarkable camouflage behavior of cuttlefish (action) and on brain activity in REM and NonREM in lizards (sleep). Both topics will focus on aspects of circuit dynamics.
