Title: "Integration of parallel ascending pathways in the primary and higher-order."
Speaker: Hiroyuki Kato, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Neuroscience Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Information flow in the cortex is classically considered as feedforward-hierarchical computation. However, recent findings have started to reveal rather parallel and distributed processing. Dr. Kato will discuss his team's work studying parallel sensory pathways across the primary and higher auditory cortices in extracting complex sound features.
