David Foster

is an assistant professor in the Dept of Neuroscience in the School Of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. His interest is how populations of neurons encode and process information in awake, behaving animals. He is particularly interested in a phenomenon called replay, in which neurons (eg in the hippocampus) are activated in precise sequences reflecting past and future behavioral episodes.

Kate Jeffery

is a Professor of Behavioural Neuroscience at University College London (UCL) who is interested in neural encoding of space, especially complex multi-compartmented three-dimensional spaces such as occur in the natural world. She uses a mixture of chronic electrophysiology, mainly of place cells, head direction cells and grid cells in the hippocampal/parahippocampal areas, and also behavioural studies of navigation and spatial decision-making.

Bartlett Mel

is an associate professor in the Dept of Biomedical Engineering at USC and a member of the Neuroscience Ph.D. program. He uses computer models to study brain function at the single cell and systems levels. Particular areas of interest include the role that dendrites play in the sensory and memory-related functions of cortical tissue, and the circuit-level algorithms housed visual cortex that underlie its remarkable natural image processing capabilities.

Sara A Solla

is a Professor of Physiology and a Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Northwestern University. Trained as a theoretical physicist in statistical mechanics and disordered media, she works in Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience. Her work uses techniques from statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics, information theory, and machine learning, to study the encoding, processing, and decoding of information in the brain. Her interests range from single neurons to circuits to networks to behavior. Recent work focuses on brain machine interfaces.

Greg Huber

is a biophysicist and Deputy Director of the KITP. He is managing the Neuro14 program.
