► May 2017: grad student Alex Piet has paper on modeling the FOF cortex accepted in Neural Computation

Congratulations to graduate student Alex Piet, who just had a paper accepted in Neural Computation on using modeling to distinguish roles of the FOF cortex in decision-making, as well as distinguishing between neural mechanisms by which the FOF could implement a post-categorization memory role. Link to paper will be added when it becomes available.

Congratulations to Ben Scott and Christine Constantinople, co-first authors of a paper in eLife describing how noise variance in pulsatile accumulation of evidence tasks appears to not scale linearly with the number of pulses, but as the square of the number of pulses. This has a number of important implications for how the noise might be generated.
