Description: Neuroscience Seminar Series

Inside the human brain, one region looms largest: the cerebral cortex. From thinking to memory, music to mental illness, the cortex controls much of human behavior. To understand this complex structure, Dr. Yuste has pioneered a combination of optical imaging and electrophysiological recording techniques to study patterns of neural activity. He is pursuing a "reverse engineering" strategy to determine the function of the cortical microcircuit, a basic element of cortex architecture. By first unraveling the dynamics of specific cortical microcircuits, and next the interactions between those microcircuits, he hopes to build a better understanding of how the whole cortex works.
