UIC Alumnus Named Canada Research Chair

Neuroscientist Jackson Cone become chairholder at UCalgary

This article has been truncated to focus on Dr. Cone, who won many accolades at UIC. The original post can be found here:

In the realm of academic brilliance, the University of Calgary proudly introduces the newest cohort of Canada Research Chairs (CRCs). Handpicked through a rigorous selection process, these exceptional scholars are committed to expanding the frontiers of knowledge across diverse disciplines.

“Today marks a momentous occasion as we introduce the latest cohort of Canada Research Chairs at UCalgary,” says Dr. William Ghali, vice-president (research). “These ambitious scholars embody the spirit of innovation and academic excellence, dedicating themselves to addressing the most pressing issues facing our communities. Their contributions will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact, shaping the landscape of knowledge and discovery."

The latest cohort of UCalgary Canada Research Chairs includes:

Dr. Jackson Cone, PhD | Tier II CRC in Computational Behavioural Neuroscience

  • Assistant professor, Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts
  • Member of the Hotchkiss Brain Institute at the Cumming School of Medicine

Jackson Cone is a leading neuroscientist delving into the mysteries of how our brains interpret sensory information to shape our perceptions and guide behaviour. His research group employs advanced experimental and analysis techniques in mouse models to determine the timing and location of nerve cell activities that contribute to visually guided behaviours. Cone's work shows promise in advancing our understanding of fundamental brain functions as well as contributing to the development of neurotechnologies to restore functions for individuals with neurological conditions.
