The University of California San Diego is a student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public institution that provides opportunity for all. Recognized as one of the top 15 research universities worldwide and born of a culture of collaboration,
Presenters: Martin Sereno, Department of Cognitive Science, UC San Diego; David Van Essen,Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, Washington University School of Medicine; Hauke Kolster,Laboratorium voor Neurofysiologie en Psychofysiologie, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven Medical School; Jonathan Winawer, Psychology Department, Stanford University; Reza Rajimehr,McGovern Institute for Brain Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Martin Sereno will introduce the concept of brain homology, elaborate on its importance, and evaluate technical limitations in addressing the homology questions.
He will then continue with some examples of cross-species comparison for retinotopic cortical areas.

According to a pdf file provided by peak oil advocate Marty Sereno, "Total energy per capita peaked in 1980."Yet per capita wealth has grown over the same time period (the very poor have done especially well.
I got an e-mail from Marty Sereno, professor, Cognitive Science, University of California, San Diego, regarding "Oil and Instinct."What follows is his e-mail message (minus a last paragraph about helium) interspersed with my replies.--- Marty Sereno: I received an undergraduate degree in geology (currently I study the brain).
Martin Sereno is director of the Birkbeck/UCL Neuroimaging Center and Professor of Cognitive Neuroimaging at UCL and Birkbeck.His research concentrates on cortical-surface-based mapping of visual and other brain areas and their relation to higher level cognition.
In addition, he has a long-standing interest in analogies between the origin and evolution of cellular and linguistic symbol-using systems.
