The purpose of the conference series is to provide continuing medical education and professional development for the entire Department of Neurosurgery. Presenters include faculty from Neurosurgery and other departments, mid-level providers and Neurosurgical residents. Visiting Professors and key leaders outside the Medical College of Wisconsin are invited to present. Topics include Neurosurgery, Neurology, Radiology, Pathology, and the Neurosciences, and any topic that furthers our best practices.
Objectives: In this talk I will show you some of the work I have been doing over the last decade on "concept cells", neurons in the human medial temporal lobe with selective and invariant responses that represent the meaning of the stimulus for memory functions. I will also present some of the most recent improvements I have carried out over the last year in order to develop a new 24/7 acquisition system for simultaneous micro and macro recordings that will reshape the field of invasive human electrophysiology. Finally, I will briefly describe some of the new projects I would like to establish in the near future exploiting the new acquisition system.
