Bioengineering Research Group, Centre for Systems Neuroscience, University of Leicester. Leicester, UK

Rodrigo Quian, from the University of Leicester, UK, is interested on the study of the principles of visual perception and memory. In particular he is focused on principles of Neural Coding, memory, visuo-motor transformations, single-trial evoked potentials, synchronization and the development of methods for the analysis of neurophysiology data. He discovered what has been named "Concept cells" or "Jennifer Aniston neurons"—neurons in the human brain that play a key role in memory formation. He has been invited by Rodrigo Alberto Rocamora (IMIM).
