Shohei Furutachi

Senior Research Fellow

Our perception of sensory inputs is strongly modulated by non-sensory information, such as predictions about these inputs, which emerge from past experiences. Shohei Furutachi studies how sensory and non-sensory signals are integrated in the cerebral cortex, and how this process is dynamically tuned by behavioural context. Currently Shohei is focusing on a higher order thalamic nucleus, the pulvinar, as a potential gain modulator of internal and external signals.
