Sensory and cogntitive interactions in the cortex of non-human Primates

Our ability to detect stimuli in a cluttered environment depends on our ability to compare sensory (what we are looking at) and mnemonic (what we are looking for) representations. It requires the interaction of several sensory and cognitive (working memory, attention, decision making) processes encoded by distributed cortical networks (occipital, parietal and prefrontal). This trainee ship is part of a project whose goal is to understand our these 3 cortical centers interact when detecting stimuli based on different sources of information.
The trainee will learn (i) how to train non-human primates to perform complex behavioral tasks, (ii) basics of behavioral analyses and (iiI) possibly basics of neuronal responses.
