Professor Carandini (University College, London) will give a Forum talk entitled “Organization of Neuronal Activity Across the Brain.”

New techniques that record the activity of thousands of neurons reveal surprising results: signals related to engagement, movements, and navigation, which were thought to be localized, are distributed across the entire cortex or even the entire brain. Mathematical and transcriptomic techniques help understand how these brainwide signals interact with local signals such as those representing sensory stimuli, but it is still unclear why the brain broadcasts certain signals so widely.
