Using generative networks to advance our understanding of the brain
Neurons in the primate visual cortex respond to features and objects present in natural scenes, but it is not clear how this features can be identified comprehensively. A synthetic image-generating approach (XDream) facilitates the discovery of these features, advancing understanding of neuronal function.
Carlos is interested in how different brain regions interact to solve motion processing and visual object recognition, asking this question via a combination of electrophysiology, reversible deactivation and microstimulation techniques as well as computational modeling. He received his M.D-Ph.D. from Harvard Medical School and his Bachelor of Science from the University of Utah. He is originally from Chihuahua, Mexico
