Spatio-temporal maps of the human brain


Any cognitive function is mediated by a network of many cortical sites whose activity is orchestrated through complex temporal dynamics. To understand cognition, we need to identify brain responses in space and time. In this talk, I will present a series of cognitive neuroscience results based on multivariate response patterns of the human brain recorded with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and with magneto-encephalography (MEG), for visual, auditory and memory tasks, as well as describe how a generative visual model can translate human brain signals into meaningful visualization.


A reception will follow the lecture.
