Aspen Brain Forum: Post 1
We are currently writing from the exciting conference 'Cracking the Neural Code' This morning we heard Christof Koch from the Allen Institute for Brain Science in WA speak about the 10 year project to study principles that explain how information is encoded, processed, and represented in the mammalian cortex and other related structures. This effort explores visual perception, consciousness and decision-making in the mouse. The goal is to integrate knowledge so as to better understand the wiring of the cortex at both functional and structural levels.
