Ho Ka Chan gave a featured oral presentation in the CNS 2017

Ho Ka gave a featured oral presentation in the main meeting of CNS 2017, a major conference in the field of computational neuroscience. In his talk titled ‘Mixture processing in a biophysical model of honey bees’, he talked about our recent progress in building a ‘statistical biophysical model’ and using the model to studying mixture processing in honey bees, or insects in general. The presentation received positive feedback from experts working on modelling and sensory processing.

Ho Ka Chan gave a talk in the DDAP9 conference in Hong Kong

Ho Ka Chan gave a talk on “Discriminating between correlated and uncorrelated signals with a small neural circuit” at the 9th Dynamics Days Asia Pacific in Hong Kong. The 4-day conference covered multi-disciplinary topics related to dynamical systems, including thermodynamics, network science, system biology and neuroscience. The Odor Objects presentation was given in the track “Neural Dynamics and Modeling I” and aroused much interest in the audience.

Thomas Nowotny presented at the HFSP Awardees Meeting in Singapore

Thomas Nowotny presented a poster and a spotlight on “Odor-background segregation and source localization using fast olfactory processing” at the 16th HFSP Awardees Meeting at the Biopolis Singapore. In an intense 3 day programme, presentations ranging from texture detection in Drosophila to genomics of sacred ibis mummies were covered. The Odor Objects presentation was well-received.
