Unit Science Day, Winter 2018

Unit Science Day, Winter 2018

The Unit held its eighth Science Day on Friday 14th December 2018. Unpublished work and future research projects were the focus of discussion, and Unit members and visitors enthusiastically took the chance to offer the constructive criticism that is vital for nurturing collaborative, world-leading research.

There were 16 short talks and poster presentations, almost all of which were given by the Unit’s early-career scientists. Attendees were also treated to a Special Lecture by Professor Andrew Jackson of the University of Newcastle, in which he gave a discerning account of how local field potential dynamics can be exploited for neural interfaces.

Unit Director Professor Peter Brown commented “Another excellent Science Day. It was great to see how the Unit’s researchers are using their foresight and ingenuity to push back the frontiers of clinical, experimental and computational neuroscience.”
