Colin Bredenberg

I'm a postdoc at the University of Montreal and Mila, co-supervised by Profs. Blake Richards and Guillaume Lajoie. I completed my PhD at New York University under Profs. Eero Simoncelli and Cristina Savin studying computational theories of synaptic plasticity in the brain.

Here, I'm applying what I learned in my PhD to investigate how the brain learns to improve performance with brain computer interfaces (BCIs) over time. I'm also studying how BCIs and other experimental techniques can be used to test and distinguish between different theories of synaptic plasticity for learning.

In my free time, I'm an avid creative writer, usually focusing on topics inspired by my studies in neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy of mind.
