Valerio Mante

Professor & Group Leader @University of Zurich and ETH Zurich

Valerio Mante is a professor at the Institute of Neuroinformatics of the University of Zurich and Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zurich, Switzerland. Dr. Mante holds a master’s degree in physics and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from ETH Zurich. For his Ph.D. thesis, he worked in the laboratory of Professor Matteo Carandini, studying the computational principles of early visual processing in mammals.

Subsequently, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Professor Bill Newsome at Stanford University, California. In Stanford, he studied the neural processes underlying context-dependent behavior, and discovered a new mechanism that allows neural signals to be flexibly gated between different brain areas.

Since 2013, he is back in Zurich, where his laboratory focuses on understanding the role of prefrontal cortex in normal and impaired cognition and on the development of tools for analysing large-scale behavioural and neural datasets.
