New OpenScope Projects Aim to Shed Light on How We Process Our Visual World

By July 11, 2023No Comments

A special “morse code” hidden in certain neurons. Brain cells that keep track of moving objects and help form memories. How our brains predict where we’re going from where we are. 

Three new projects are underway at the Allen Institute to delve into the science behind these topics, through the shared neuroscience observatory known as OpenScope. The newly awarded projects were proposed and are being led by: 

Michael Berry, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Neuroscience at Princeton University, whose project explores how the visual processing part of the brain predicts the near future from the present.
