Name: Marcelo Mattar

Email: marcelomattar@gmail.com

Phone Number: +55 12 81144644

Current Job Title: Research Scientist

Program Completion/Graduation Date: July 2010

Department: Neuroscience

University: Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica – ITA  

Major Professor: Takashi Yoneyama

Position Desired: I am currently looking for a phd position in a university or in a research institute, exploring the area of interface between memory, learning and vision. Using methods like fMRI and EEG, I want to investigate the neural substrates of object recognition, understanding how, when and where learning and storage occurs, and then to develop computational models to explain and predict this behavior. I plan to use the knowledge developed throughout my graduate school years to improve machines and computers, making them more capable of learning through images, like humans.

Name: Yuri Dabaghian

Email: dabaghian@gmail.com

Phone Number: (415) 830-2735

Current Job Title: Research Scientist

Program Completion/Graduation Date: September 2010

University: University of California at San Francisco  (UCSF)

Department: Physiology

Major Professor: Loren Frank

Position Desired: My goal is to obtain a tenure track faculty position in a university or in a research institute, for experimental and theoretical research of space representations and spatial memory mechanisms in the brain, to investigate the principles that allow the brain to combine various types of spatial information into a single coherent spatial representation of the environment. I plan to study the formation, the stability and the dynamics of neuronal spatial maps in the (para)hippocampal region and parietal cortex (potentially also in (pre)motor, inferotemporal, retrosplenial, entorhinal, etc., cortices) and interactions between them, based on real time analysis of neural and behavioral data. The research will be based on combining animal (rat) electrophysiology in hippocampus, and cognitive research in human subjects, and the data will be used to guide computational and general theoretical modeling of the principles of neuronal space representation.
