HiLIFE webinar / Viikki Monday Seminar: Gilles Laurent

Brain dynamics and evolution: explorations of sleep and camouflage

Gilles Laurent has been a Director at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt (Germany) since 2009. Before this, he was the Lawrence Hansson Professor of Biology at the California Institute of Technology (Pasadena, CA), whose faculty he joined in 1990. He was a postdoctoral fellow and Locke Research Fellow of the Royal Society at the University of Cambridge from 1985 to 1990, after studies in Veterinary Medicine (DVM) and Neuroethology (PhD) in Toulouse, France.

Gilles Laurent’s interests are centered on identifying principles of brain operations, often through comparative approaches. He has worked on olfactory computation in insects, fish and rodents, and on motor control, local circuits, and vision in insects. His research today concerns sleep (in reptiles), brain evolution, and texture perception and generation (as expressed during camouflage in cephalopods). The theme that binds these diverse topics is the dynamics of neuronal circuits.

Welcome to this exciting seminar! 

Eero Castrén and Claudius Kratochwil

Gilles is available for meeting with local scientists in Viikki on Monday 27th and in Biomedicum on Tuesday 28th. If you are interested in talking to him, please contact Claudius  for Monday and Eero for Tuesday.
