    Song learning circuitry is thought to operate using a unique representation of each moment within each song syllable. Distinct timestamps for each moment in the song have been observed in the premotor cortical nucleus HVC, ...
  • Wu, Yang, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    Research in the domain of cognitive science has tended to neglect emotions. In my thesis, I take several steps to fill this gap by looking at people's representation of emotions, and its connection to other representations ...
  • Vander Weele, Caitlin Miya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    Despite abundant evidence that dopamine modulates medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) activity to mediate diverse behavioral functions, the precise circuit computations remain elusive. One potentially unifying theoretical model ...
  • Richardson, Hilary L. (Hilary Leigh) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    Social cognitive abilities undergo drastic changes throughout childhood. Theory of mind (ToM), the ability to reason about the mental states of others, is a core social cognitive ability that is crucial for navigating the ...
  • Seibert, Darren (Darren Allen) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    Despite being reflexive, primate view invariant object recognition is a complex computational task. These computations are thought to reside in the ventral visual stream, specifically culminating in inferior temporal (IT) ...
