Report for the 2013 University of Sydney Selby Research Award: Dr Pulin Gong
Support from the Selby Research Award 2013 has enabled Dr Pulin Gong to substantially advance a project investigating the mechanisms that primate brains use to process information in a flexible and adaptive manner.
Dr Pulin used studies of marmosets to identify the way that firing activities in the neural circuits of the brain vary in sequence and location. This information was analysed in the context of Dr Gong’s ‘distributed dynamic computation’ model of brain function, and shown to be able to bring together two leading theories of how timing of neuronal firing is coordinated.Back to News & Reports
