André Longtin explores how the brain detects novel stimuli and represents memories, such as those of temporal sequences. His work aims to understand how the brain relies on both deterministic and random processes to convey, store and retrieve information. His research has the potential to break new ground at the interface of physics, biology and medicine, with applications ranging from prosthetics to computing architectures.
