Researcher and Group leader at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience at the Norwegian University for Science and Technology, PhD on Computational Neuroscience
Soledad Gonzalo Cogno is a group leader at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience at the Norwegian University for Science and Technology, where she leads the Neural Dynamics and Computation Lab. She obtained her bachelor’s in Physics at Balseiro Institute (Argentina), and in the same institution did her PhD on Computational Neuroscience. Later Soledad did her postdoc in the lab of May-Britt Moser and Edvard Moser, the 2014 Nobel Prize winners for Physiology or Medicine.
Soledad Gonzalo Cogno seeks to understand how the activity of individual neurons is coordinated at the neural network level, and how this coordination underlies cognition and behaviour. To address this goal, she combines her expertise on computational neuroscience with state-of-the-art methods for recording large neuronal populations.
