Like Voltron, Clay and Weiji combine to form the CLEIJI The new grant, in collaboration with Tommy Sprague, will be used to support studies aimed to understand the role of uncertainty in working memory!
Tommy's grant will fund his work on the effects of behavioral priority on working memory representations! Congrats Tommy!!!!
Wayne, Jon, and Clay used a novel population receptive field mapping technique to show that the superior precentral sulcus is actually composed of two adjacent retinotopic maps! Now published in eLife (see Publications for a link).
Yep, Zuzanna successfully defended her dissertation today! Nice work! Now, on to the party!

Wayne successfully defended his dissertation and will begin a joint post-doc with Clayton Curtis and David Heeger, and will continue his collaborations with Jon Winawer.
Wayne does it again and publishes a great paper with our collaborators. Check it out in publications! Abstract: The neural mechanisms that support working memory (WM) depend on persistent neural activity. Within topographically organized maps of space in dorsal parietal cortex, spatially selective neural activity persists during WM for location. However, to date, the necessity of [...]
