If You Could Read My Mind…

Plenary / Panel
in englischer Sprache

Several scientists are working on visualization tools and computer models to decode the complex processes in our brains. Thanks to these methods, disease progression and treatment success can be predicted. However, in the future, will these technologies be used to read visual images or even thoughts and memories from our brains?

Ph.D. Jack GALLANT

Professor and Head, Gallant Lab, Department of Psychology, University of California Berkeley, CA

1983-1988 Ph.D., Yale University, New Haven, CT
1988-1992 Post-doctoral Research Fellow, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA

 The overall goal of Prof. Gallant's research program is to discover how the brain represents information under natural conditions (i.e., natural stimulation and natural tasks), and to create computational models that accurately predict brain activity under naturalistic conditions. He currently uses fMRI, statistical and computational modeling to produce detailed human cortical maps of information related to vision, language and decision making; to characterize individual differences in cortical organization in humans; and to understand dynamic thought processes in the human brain; and to decode human brain activity.
