Maryam Hosseini’s work was presented at the SFN (Society For Neuroscience) conference which took place from November 3 to 7 in San Diego, US. There, she presented her research on encoding of background noise in the central nucleus of inferior colliculus (ICC).

Her research project  aims to study the effect of various background noise on the spiking activity of neurons in different auditory structures. She has proposed metrics to directly evaluate the effect of additive input noise on neural activity of a given neuron.
