Distinct streams for supervised and unsupervised learning in the visual cortex
Carsen Stringer is a group leader at HHMI Janelia Research Campus. She did her PhD work at University College London on computational neuroscience with Kenneth Harris and Matteo Carandini, and her postdoc at Janelia with Marius Pachitariu. She develops algorithms for understanding large-scale neural activity. In addition, she has developed general segmentation algorithms for cellular data, which enable fast and accurate processing of ~50,000 neuron recordings.
