BI 071 J. Patrick Mayo: The Path To Faculty
/

Patrick and I mostly discuss his path from a technician in the then nascent Jim DiCarlo lab, through his graduate school and two postdoc experiences, and finally landing a faculty position, plus the culture and issues in academia in general. We also cover plenty of science, like the role of eye movements in the study of vision, the neuroscience (and concept of) attention, what Patrick thinks of the deep learning hype, and more.
