Harish Gunasekaran, MSc, is a highly curious student, interested in solving the deep philosophical problems such as how the brain encodes the ‘reality’ i.e., the concepts of space and time, the mind-body duality, the SELF, and consciousness. He strongly believes that with the support of the Cognitive Neuroscience field using the advanced neuroimaging methods (EEG/MEG, fMRI), along with a strong interdisciplinary and integrated approach ranging from philosophy, linguistics, physics, engineering, and up to the very recent artificial general intelligence (AGI), it might be possible to decode and unlock such mysteries happening in the brain. He received his bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering (2008-12) from Sri Ramakrishna Engineering College (SREC), Coimbatore, India, first master’s degree in Bioengineering (2013-15) from the Christian Medical College, (CMC) Vellore, India, and second master’s in Bionics Engineering (Neural Engineering track, 2015- 17), from the University of Pisa and Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy. He is currently pursuing his PhD exploring the functional role of neural oscillations in temporal processing, by winning a highly competitive fellowship, NUMERICS PhD, jointly funded by CEA and the EuropeanUnion’s Horizon 2020 under Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (2019-22).

Yvan Nedelec, MSc, is a PhD student […]

Sloane Paulcan, MSc is a PhD student at the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (NeuroPSI) where I investigate the neuronal basis of temporal order judgement in rats, under the direction of Valérie Doyère and the co-direction of Virginie Van Wassenhove, (ANR AutoTime). My purpose is to investigate the neuronal mechanisms and the brain structures involved in the processing of temporal order of audio-visual stimuli. I am interested in the cognitive mechanisms underlying basic brain functioning and the translation to adaptive behavior. Moreover, a part of my study investigates the temporal order judgment in a schizophrenic model, adding a pathological aspect to this very fundamental topic.

Ignacio POLTI, MSc  • Ignacio is now a PhD student who continues studying timing & uncertainty at the Kavli Institute for System Neurosciences (NTNU) with Christian Doeller.
