Computational Neuroscience

Surname, First name Research Focus Availability
Brandt, Thomas In the Institute of Clinical Neurosciences, studies address vestibular function in health and disease from eye movement recordings to perception using various methods such as psychophysical measurements, eye movement recordings, fMRI and computational modeling. not available
Franzmeier, Nicolai Our overarching goal is to better understand the mechanisms that promote the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease in order to develop clinically applicable personalized medicine models for predicting patient-specific disease trajectories. not available
Hemmert, Werner We focus our research on the auditory system where we combine modelling studies with experiments to develop novel approaches for the advancement of neuroprosthetics. not available
Herz, Andreas Data analysis, computational/mathematical modelling and theoretical investigation of neurobiological mechanisms underlying spatial orientation and navigation. Focus: Single-cell and network behavior of head-direction and grid-cell systems within the rodent entorhinal cortex. available
Sirota, Anton Our research is focused on the mechanisms of information representation and propagation within and across different cortical networks. not available
Wachtler, Thomas We perceive visual features such as color, form, or size of objects not in isolation but depending on the visual context. Contextual influences are thought to play an important role in reliable and efficient perception. In this project we will perform quantitative measurements of visual performance and use models of neural processing to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying contextual influences on visual perception. available
