Ed will be at Harvard Friday, October 23 as part of a one-day workshop titled “Synesthesia – A Window into Brain Development” hosted by Takao Hensch and Daphne Maurer. He will be speaking about “Developing & Decoding Synesthesia” including our recent work using multi-voxel pattern analysis (MVPA) to decode the neural mechanisms of synesthesia (see also our SFN presentation that Radhika will be giving this week).
The Ed. Neuro. Lab (minus Ed) will be in Chicago for the Society for Neuroscience Annual meeting! Liz and Radhika will be presenting posters:
On Monday, Oct. 19, Liz will be presenting on our fMRI-Adaptation work to explore the neural foundations of fractions processing Grounding symbolic fractions in the ratio processing system: A developmental fMRI-A study.
On Wednesday, Oct. 21, Radhika will be presenting our collaboration with Brad Postle’s group to use MVPA to help identify the neural mechanisms of grapheme-color synesthesia : Decoding grapheme-color synesthesia using multivariate pattern analysis.
Ed will be in Lincoln, Nebraska Thursday and Friday to speak at their 2015 Educational Neuroscience Conference. Topics will include music and the brain, fractions learning, learning styles, and the importance of sleep for learning. It promises to be a fun two days!
