Details on the workshop schedule to follow!
Liberty Hamilton, PhD
Liberty Hamilton is an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Austin with a joint appointment in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Science and the Department of Neurology. She also holds an adjunct appointment in the Department of Neurosurgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. Broadly, her lab studies how sounds are represented in the auditory cortex during natural speech perception and production, and how these representations change as a function of development, attention, and multimodal interactions with other sensory modalities. Her group uses a combination of intracranial recordings in children and adult patients with epilepsy, scalp EEG, and computational modeling to understand this process.
CNSP2022 Young Investigator Keynote
Narayan Sankaran, PhD
Narayan is a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Edward Chang within the department of Neurosurgery at UCSF. Prior to his appointment at UCSF, he completed his PhD from the University of Sydney under the supervision of Simon Carlile. Broadly, his research seeks to understand the neural computations and specializations that underlie our perception of music. To do this he uses a combination of intracranial recordings in neurosurgical patients and MEG recordings in formally trained musicians.
