Cortical-layer-specific functional imaging of the human brain (2018–2020)
This project aims to record layer-specific cortical activity in humans by leveraging ultra-high field magnetic
resonance imaging. Using layer-specific measurements in conjunction with an innovative experimental design,
this research will help to elucidate the cortical underpinnings of predictive coding processes elicited during
perception. It is expected that it will also yield robust techniques for the general analysis of neuroimaging-based,
layer-specific measurements. This project should, therefore, progress the fields of cognitive neuroscience and
neuroimaging as well as bring the field of neuroimaging closer to that of neurophysiology and thus open
cooperative gain among researchers who previously lacked a common footing.
