Giulia Dominijanni is visiting us from EPFL/Cambridge to tell us about her work on cortical representations of extra limbs.
A summary of our work on cortical modelling has been included in the most recent Leverhulme Newsletter.
Giulia won 3rd place at the Work-In-Progress poster competition at EuroHaptics 2022 in Hamburg, Germany. Congratulations!
NeuTouch fellow Miguel Casal is visiting us from IIT on secondment to work on models of efficient receptor allocations in touch.
We received a Research Project Grant from the Leverhulme Trust to continue our work on modelling cortical somatosensory representations.
Laura passed her viva and is now Dr Edmondson pending minor corrections. Congratulations!
Giulia and Luke presented their respective work at the BioMedEng21 conference.
Giulia and fellow NeuTouch student Miguel presented their recent joint work on tactile population coding at the IEEE EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering (NER21).
Laura’s abstract on resource allocation in sensory bottlenecks was selected for a talk at Cosyne 2021!
Zijun joins the lab as a PhD student, working on models of cortical somatotopic plasticity.
Rodrigo’s FootSim abstract was accepted for the Neuromatch conference! Stay tuned for a talk about the modelling of cutaneous afferents of the foot sole.
The lab’s first preprint and Giulia’s first publication is up on bioRxiv.
Laura presents at Neuromatch online conference!
Our paper ‘Nonlinear scaling of resource allocation in sensory bottlenecks’ is accepted to NeurIPS 2019 in Vancouver, Canada.
Giulia joins the lab as a PhD student! She will be working on projects as part of the NeuTouch collaboration. Welcome Giulia!
