Guest Presentation: Layer-specific coding using ultra-high field (7T) fMRI to investigate feedback in the visual cortex

Abstract: David Mumford (1991) proposed a role for reciprocal topographic cortical pathways in which higher areas send abstract predictions of the world to lower cortical areas. At lower cortical areas, top-down predictions are then compared to the incoming sensory stimulation. Several questions arise within this framework: (1) do descending predictions remain abstract, or do they translate into concrete level predictions, the ‘language’ of lower visual areas? (2) how is incoming sensory information compared to top-down predictions? Are input signals subtracted from the prediction (as proposed in the predictive coding framework) or are they multiplied (as proposed by other models i.e. biased competition or adaptive resonance theory)? Contributing to the debate of abstract or concrete level information, we aim to investigate the information content of feedback projections with functional MRI. We have exploited a strategy in which feedforward information is occluded in parts of visual cortex: i.e. along the non-stimulated apparent motion path, behind a white square that we used to occlude natural visual scenes, or by blindfolding our subjects (Muckli & Petro 2013). By presenting visual illusions, contextual scene information or by playing sounds we were able to capture feedback signals within the occluded areas of the visual cortex. MVPA analysis of the feedback signal reveals that they are more abstract than the feedforward signal. Furthermore, using high resolution MRI we found that feedback is sent to the outer cortical layers of V1. We also show that feedback to V1 can originate from auditory information processing (Vetter, Smith & Muckli 2014). We are currently developing strategies to reveal the precision and potential functions of cortical feedback. Our results link into the emerging paradigm shift that portrays the brain as a ‘prediction machine’ (Clark 2013)

Maria Chait

Guest presentation: Auditory cortex is highly tuned to the emergence of regular patterns in sound sequences

Abstract: A compelling theoretical framework of brain function, and the subject of much current research in systems neuroscience, concerns a view of the brain as a regularity extractor and predictive information-processor. Broadly, this suggests that our perception of the external environment is mediated by processes that generate predictions about expected input and compare these to the actual signal, adjusting the internal representation (model) of the world based on the obtained error. A major research aim in my laboratory is to investigate such processes in the context of the auditory system. Indeed, whilst the predictive coding view applies to all sensory modalities, it is perhaps particularly intuitive in the context of hearing because auditory information is dynamic and fleeting – one means of making sense of the acoustic environment involves continually assessing sounds for regular patterning so as to form models, or rules, about how auditory objects in the environment are expected to behave. The formation of such models would allow the system to adapt to environment statistics, conserve resources, and optimize behaviour. I will present a series of psychophysics and MEG experiments which investigate listeners' sensitivity to the emergence of regular patterns in on-going sound sequences. Our results demonstrate that the auditory system is remarkably efficient at detecting the appearance of regularities in sound sequences, even when these regularities are characterized by very long, repeating patterns. Brain responses which signal these processes occur rapidly and irrespective of listeners’ attention – a finding which is consistent with the hypothesis that the brain continually (and automatically) searches of patterns in sensory input.

What the Bilingual Brain Can Tell Us About Language, Reading and Cognitive Development

Language is one our most quintessential "human" faculties, and the origins of this capacity, both in ontogeny and phylogeny, continue to be among the most hotly debated questions in neuroscience, psychology and linguistics. What neural systems support the capacity for language across the lifespan? What is the biological basis of these neural systems? Can experience change their development? How? When? Why? Using the bilingual brain, and innovative advances in statistics and modeling, as a lens into these questions, we track the development of neural sites and systems that make possible our species' capacity for language, and in turn, reading. We show how language experience and, crucially, the age of experience changes the neural systems underlying language, reading and higher cognition, and the degree with which these systems are lateralized to the left hemisphere. I will highlight future research directions that combine functional neuroimaging, DNA genotyping and behavioral studies with computational modeling in order to provide new insights in the functional organization and development of the human brain.
