Interoception substantiate embodied feelings and shape cognitive processes including perceptual awareness.  My lab combines architectonics, tract-tracing, electrophysiology, direct electrical stimulation fMRI (DES-fMRI), neural event triggered fMRI (NET-fMRI) and optogenetics in the macaque monkey...

The space-time dynamics of interactions in neural systems are often described using terminology of information processing, or computation, in particular with reference to information being stored, transferred and modified in these systems. In this talk, we describe an information-...

Abstract: Generative models are constantly improving, thanks to recent contributions in adversarial training, unsupervised learning, and autoregressive models. In this talk, I will describe new generative models in computer vision, voice synthesis, and music.

In music – I will...

Abstract: By a quirk of evolution, camouflaging octopus and cuttlefish report their visual perceptions by modulating their skin color and 3-d texture on time scales of seconds or minutes to match their surroundings (they are generative image modelers).  Their survival demands that predators...

A striking feature of modern supervised machine learning is its pervasive over-parametrization. Deep networks contain millions of parameters, often exceeding the number of data points by orders of magnitude. These networks are trained to nearly interpolate the data by driving the training...

Abstract: The brain exploits the statistical regularities of the natural world. In the visual system, an efficient representation of light intensity begins in retina, where statistical redundancies are removed via spatiotemporal decorrelation. Much less is known, however, about the efficient...

Abstract:  In this talk I will describe a theory that sensory regions of the neocortex process two inputs. One input is the well-known sensory data arriving via thalamic relay cells. We propose...
