The Presenter
André Fenton
Professor of Neural Science, New York University

André Fenton is professor of neural science at the Center for Neural Science at New York University. He studies how brains store memories, and how we activate information that is relevant without activating what is irrelevant.

On 18 November, André Fenton described mouse studies that have helped reveal the neural underpinnings of certain cognitive problems observed in autism and other conditions.
