    Neural circuits of visual perception
    Visual perception does not constitute a 1:1 representation of our environment, but heavily depends on context. Context can be provided by many sources, including other sensory stimuli, behavioral goals or past experiences.
    What are the neural circuits of the visual system mediating such contextual processing?
    What is the role of feedback? more

  • Benedikt Grothe


    Auditory processing:
    two basic tasks:
    1. Sound localization and
    2. Sound recognition. more

  • Andreas Herz

    Grid cell

    We use a broad range of computational methods to address various neurobiological questions and develop simplified phenomenological models that are amenable to exact mathematical analysis and quantitative interpretation.

    Current foci:
    - neural basis of spatial navigation
    - interaction of cell-intrinsic and network dynamics more
