Our research addresses the microscopic, precise spiking dynamics in neural networks, the le­vel of mesoscopic col­lective dynamics as well as emer­gent large-scale phenomena such as control and lear­ning of behavior. The long-term aim is a theoretical understanding of the complex dynamics and the resulting computations of neural systems. For this goal, it is essential to […]

The overall research aim of the Department of Behavior and Brain Organization (BBO) is to quantify how mammals use vision to make decisions and the underlying computations that the neuronal circuitry performs during natural behaviors. To gain access to the full repertoire of an animal’s behavioral strategies, self-determined sensory input, as well as the underlying neural activity, […]
