Evolutionary dynamics of growth factor production in cancer cell populations
ID: 627816
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2017-08-31
Cancer is a process of clonal selection, and analytical methods from evolutionary biology should be able to explain why cancer tissues are heterogeneous and develop resistance to current therapies. Evolutionary game theory helps understand non-intuitive properties of the freq...

The neural implementation of contextual influences in speech perception
ID: 623072
Start date: 2014-08-01, End date: 2017-09-05
Human listeners can perceive speech quite effortlessly, although it is, computationally, a very challenging task. An important reason why humans perform so well is because they make use of acoustic information that is available in the context. Such contextual information is u...
