RCBB Seminar: Prof Nicky Edelstyn (Keele University) – From relay station to integrative hub: The evolving view of the thalamus

October 26, 2022 @ 14:0015:00

In this RCBB Research Seminar Series talk, Prof Nicky Edelstyn (Keele University) will present her current research under the title “From relay station to integrative hub: The evolving view of the thalamus”.

Abstract: Lesions of the mediodorsal and anterior thalamic nuclei consistently produce a neuropsychological footprint that is diverse and inexplicable from the  corticocentric view that considers this structure to be a remnant of our evolutionary past. In this talk, I will present the neuropsychological findings from 3 published single case studies (QX, SM and PH), and discuss the functional implications of their deficits in executive function, episodic memory, and attention.
