Location

Ground Floor Lecture Theatre | Sainsbury Wellcome Centre (link Map)
25 Howland Street | London | W1T 4JG | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Speaker: Bence Ölveczky, Professor in the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and the Center for Brain Science at Harvard University

Hosted by Adam Kampff

Biography: Bence Ölveczky graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Budapest. He worked as a journalist for a couple of years before starting his PhD in Neuroscience at Harvard University, where he studied motion processing in the retina with Markus Meister. He was elected a Junior Fellow in the Harvard Society of Fellows in 2004 and did his fellowship on birdsong learning with Michale Fee at MIT.

He is currently a Professor in the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and the Center for Brain Science at Harvard University. His lab studies the neural circuit mechanisms that underlie different aspects of motor skill learning and execution, using rats as a model system. He has received several awards, including the McKnight and Klingenstein Fellowships.
