Decrypting the neural code

Abstract: 

How do our brains represent the internal and external world? To explore this fundamental question about the neural code, my ongoing work takes an “agnostic” approach by characterizing a set of key properties that describe brain activity patterns. I will focus on three of these properties in my talk: redundancy (i.e., how predictable activity patterns are across the brain, across people, and across tasks), complexity (i.e., what is the “dimensionality” of neural activity pattens, and does this change based on what we are doing?), and interactivity (i.e., how do our brain structures interact to support our ongoing thoughts?).
