Event Details: Neuroscience Lecture Series: "Neural coding and perception of communication sounds in songbirds"

Description:

Sarah Woolley, PhD

"Neural coding and perception of communication sounds in songbirds"

 Associate Professor Department of Psychology at Columbia University and Principal Investigator at the Communication Neuroscience Laboratory.

 Dr. Woolley's main research interest is to understand how the brain forms neural representations of communication vocalizations, and how these neural representations lead to the perception of socially meaningful information. She uses behavioral, electrophysiological, pharmacological and computational data analysis techniques to investigate how vocal neural coding is shaped by developmental experience, learning, and species identity, and to study how the brain encodes the acoustic features that are critical for song recognition.
