Mariano Sigman

Founder, Integrative Neuroscience Laboratory, University of Buenos Aires

Mariano Sigman obtained a master degree in physics at the University of Buenos Aires and a Ph.D. in neuroscience at the Rockefeller University, with Charles Gilbert, investigating how the cortex organizes to assemble the statistics of the visual world, vast cultural changes (such as reading) and dynamically multiplex several functions through addressing mechanisms and top-down control. He moved to Paris as a Human Frontiers Fellow, investigating with Stanislas Dehaene decision making, cognitive architecture and consciousness. He is the founder of the Integrative Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of Buenos Aires. Sigman is the only Latin American scientist to be a director of the Human Brain Project, was awarded a Human Frontiers Career Development Award, the National Prize of Physics, the Young Investigator Prize of "College de France," the IBM Scalable Data Analytics Award, and is a scholar of the James S. McDonnell Foundation. In 2016 he was made a Laureate of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.
