JCSMR Director’s ‘Health through Discovery’ Public Lecture Series. Deciphering the language of brain cells

Associate Professor Ehsan Arabzadeh, Eccles Institute of Neuroscience,The John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU.

An important challenge to Neuroscience is to understand how the brain generates a reliable representation of the world around us. This seminar will focus on an “expert” system, the rodent whiskers, and investigate how the elegant cortical circuitry underpins efficient processing of the sensory signals that can guide the animal’s decisions.

Ehsan Arabzadeh is a group leader and an Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the Eccles Institute of Neuroscience.  He holds a Medical Degree (Tehran University of Medical Sciences; 2001) and a PhD cum laude in Neuroscience (International School for Advanced Studies, Trieste, Italy; 2005). Members of his research group, the Neural Coding Lab, study sensory processing at the level of single cells and cortical circuits.
