We are looking for a PhD student in the field of computational brain growth modeling. You can contact Julien Lefèvre (julien.lefevre_AT_univ-amu.fr) to know more, and download the full job description.
A new paper has been accepted in Journal of Neuroscience, from our long-lasting collaboration with Bill Hopkins. The paper establish a difference in depth within the central sulcus between chimpanzees that are able to produce attention getting (AG) sounds and those which cannot produce such sounds. An heritability study shows that such difference is the result of cortical reorganization when learning to produce AG sounds. See the publications section.
MeCA will present two papers at the ISBI 2017 conference in Melbourne, Australia, April 18-21. One paper is by Lucie Thiébaut, on the projection of fMRI data on the cortical surface, the other is a collaboration with Yann Leguen and Vincent Frouin, from the Neurospin center, and is about the genetics of sulcal pits. See the publications section.
Due to technical problems the MeCA website has been down for a while and we lost quite a bit of information. It is now back. We expect all pages to be complete within a short time.
