It's about time: the role of temporal context in adaptive auditory coding
Year of award: 2014
Dr Sundeep Teki
University of Oxford, United Kingdom
Sundeep is a sensory neuroscientist who has worked on how the human brain extracts sounds in noisy listening environments and how it encodes time intervals between rhythmic sequences of sounds. During his Fellowship, he aims to combine electrophysiological and behavioural approaches in animal models to uncover how single neurons and populations of neurons in the auditory cortex and higher-order frontal cortex encode the temporal structure of sounds. Sundeep will work with Professor Andrew King at the University of Oxford, and Professor Shihab Shamma and Professor Daniel Pressnitzer at École Normale Supérieure, Paris. Sundeep will also collaborate with his mentor, Professor Timothy Griffiths at UCL.
