Echoes Around the Home.

Echoes Around The Home is a cross disciplinary project conceived and led by Dr Nicholas Firth (UCL Computer Science), working with social scientists Prof. Mary Pat Sullivan (Nipissing University Applied and Professional Studies) and Emma Harding (UCL Institute of Neurology), neuropsychologist Prof. Sebastian Crutch (UCL Institute of Neurology) and computer scientist Prof. Daniel Alexander (UCL Computer Science). This project has been funded by a Social Science Plus+ award from The Collaborative Social Science Domain UCL and will begin installing Echo’s in late March. More...

Location: UCL Bloomsbury - Roberts 106 Roberts building

Carla Semedo:

Title: Improved tractography-based segmentation of the human thalamus
The thalamus is the main gateway of information to the cerebral cortex and it is composed of distinct nuclei that differ in terms of the existing neural pathways. In this talk, I will present a framework that improves thalamus parcellation by considering probabilistic tractography and population-connectivity priors.

Andrada Ianus:

Title: Advanced diffusion MRI for microstructure imaging
Imaging tissue microstructure is one of the key challenges of diffusion MRI. My research is focused on developing novel diffusion acquisition and data analysis techniques to improve the sensitivity of the measurements to microstructural features, such as pore size and shape. In this talk I will present my work on estimating microscopic anisotropy at different length scales in the mouse brain, using a novel acquisition we have recently proposed, namely Double Oscillating Diffusion Encoding (DODE).

Title: Linking development of visual abilities to visual processing pathways
While most basic visual abilities mature early in life, there are many aspects of vision that continue to develop surprisingly long, some even until into the teenage years. With the advancement of treatments of eye disease in children, it is becoming more important to understand these sensitive periods in visual development, and the factors causing them. In the Child Vision Lab we develop child-friendly measures of visual abilities, visual processing in the brain, and how development of vision guides performance. I will provide examples of the methods we use, and present some of our recent findings.
BIO: I obtained my PhD at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development at Birkbeck, University of London, under supervision of Prof. Marty Sereno, Prof. Denis Mareschal, and Prof Mark Johnson. This project focussed on the development of object representations in the dorsal and ventral stream. I then worked on the development of sensory and motor integration and its neural basis, with Dr. Marko Nardini at the UCL Institute of Opthalmology. After this Postdoc I have kept my position at the Institute of Opthalmology to pursue my own research program on the optimisation of vision and action in development, and to expand my work to children with visual impairments. Since January 2016, am appointed as Research Fellow (on an ESRC Future Leaders Fellowship) at the UCL Division of Language and Psychology.
