The Department Welcome Day will happen on Monday November 4th, in Room 4, 9.30-12.30.

A new publication from Cognitive Neuroscience

In a study authored by Vahid Esmaeili and Mathew Diamond (head of SISSA's Tactile Perception and Learning Lab), rats compared the speeds of two sequential vibrissal vibrations. Neurons in the primary somatosensory (vS1) and prelimbic (PL) cortex coded the stimuli.

Well done, Zuo!

Two publications that track the perceptual decision making process from the sensory receptors to the final action came out in Current Biology.

Congrats, Roberto!

Terrific news for the Department — a post-doc of ours, Roberto Bottini, was awarded an ERC Starting Grant to crack the secrets behind consciousness and word meaning in the brain.

Good job Vladimir, Alessio & Daniele

We are happy to announce the publication in Current Biology of  “Accuracy of rats in discriminating visual objects is explained by the complexity of their perceptual strategy.” (link here for the main article and here for an accompanying Dispatch of Philippe Schyns). The paper originated in the doctoral thesis of Vladimir Djurdjevic, supervised by Davide Zoccolan, and explains how the variability of rat perceptual strategies accounts for the variable proficiency of the animals in complex object discrimination tasks.


Nice work, Athena!
