Venkatesh Murthy, from Harvard University, USA, is interested in understanding how neural circuits process information, particularly in the rodent olfactory system. He studies how information about volatile odorants is represented in the early sensory parts of the brain, and how this information is processed by sensory circuits to guide behavior. He has been invited by Matthieu Louis (CRG).
