Title of Talk: Zooming through the Human Brain in Space and Time: A look at Perception and Memory Processes
Teaser: When we open our eyes, visual information flows into various parts of our brain, with each region interpreting different aspects of what we are seeing. By combining ms-resolution magnetoencephalography (MEG) and mm-resolution functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), we can identify stages of visual recognition processes happening at the millisecond and millimeter scales in the human brain.
