Cracking the columnar-level code in the visual hierarchy: Ultra high-field functional MRI, neuro-cognitive modelling and high-resolution brain-computer interfaces
ID: 269853
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2016-04-30
"Recent developments of high-field functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have advanced the level of functional detail to sub-millimetre spatial resolution. This is of critical importance because in the mammalian cortex, small functional cortical patches appear to const...

The neurobiology of schemas: knowledge acquisition and consolidation
ID: 268800
Start date: 2011-06-01, End date: 2016-05-31
This Co-Investigator Application is an interdisciplinary experimental analysis of the neurobiological mechanisms by which we acquire knowledge. Our approach builds on the foundations of contemporary cognitive neuroscience, particularly ideas about the neural mechanisms of dec...

Generic Early Warning Signals for Critical Transitions
ID: 268732
Start date: 2011-06-01, End date: 2016-05-31
Abrupt shifts occasionally reshape complex systems in nature ranging in scale from lakes and reefs to regional climate systems. Such shifts sometimes represent critical transitions in the sense that they happen at tipping points where runaway change propels the system towards...

MicroRNA function in cardiac and metabolic disease
ID: 615708
Start date: 2014-04-01, End date: 2019-03-31
Cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Despite numerous treatment options the prevalence of cardiovascular indications continues to increase, underscoring the need for new therapeutic strategies. In recent years, prominent roles of m...

Quantum-Degenerate Strontium:
Mixtures, Molecules, and Many-Body Physics
ID: 615117
Start date: 2014-04-01, End date: 2019-03-31
In 2009 my research team created the first Bose-Einstein condensate of strontium. This breakthrough is the foundation of my research program, which will investigate quantum many-body phenomena with a focus on quantum magnetism and physics related to the quantum Hall effect. W...

Analysis of the Dark Universe through Lensing Tomography
ID: 279396
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
The discoveries that the expansion of the universe is accelerating due to an unknown “dark energy” and that most of the matter is invisible, highlight our lack of understanding of the major constituents of the universe. These surprising findings set the stage for research in ...

Race Matter: On the Absent Presence of Race in Forensic Identification
ID: 617451
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2019-08-31
This ethnographic project on race in forensic practice aims to study how technologies of identification shape race. The focus is on ‘face-making’ in forensic identification; i.e. the reconstruction of faces of unknown persons, a practice entwined with ‘race-making’. In five s...

Speeded decision-making in the basal ganglia: An integrative model-based approach
ID: 313481
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-01-31
Speeded decision-making is essential for adaptive behavior in an impatient world. Fight or flight, stop or go, left or right, shoot or pass, peanut butter or jelly: our environment constantly demands decisions. Choosing prematurely can result in death, traffic accidents, coll...

From mesoderm to hematopoietic stem cell commitment: cellular and molecular events occuring during mouse embryonic development
ID: 309361
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs) are at the origin of all blood cells needed throughout life. HSC transplantation is used to treat patients with blood related disorders. However, the number of HSCs available for clinic and research remains limited. The production of large quan...

Bayes or Bust: Sensible Hypothesis Tests for Social Scientists
ID: 283876
Start date: 2012-05-01, End date: 2017-04-30
The goal of this proposal is to develop and promote Bayesian hypothesis tests for social scientists. By and large, social scientists have ignored the Bayesian revolution in statistics, and, consequently, most social scientists still assess the veracity of experimental effects...
