HBP scientists argue for brain simulators as “mathematical observatories” for neuroscience
Researchers at the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) and the German Primate Center – Leibniz Institute for Primate Research (DPZ) are demonstrating improved frequency resolution of artificial hearing using optical stimulation of the inner ear.
New study investigates 'social acceleration'
A new study carried out in a collaboration between researchers from LMU and UC San Diego suggests that new sensory experiences are encoded in pre-existing patterns of neuronal activity, which are recalled, modulated and enhanced following periods of behavioral activity.
Chemnitz University of Technology develops learning algorithm for improved car body manufacturing in BMBF-funded project
Scientists put AI systems to the test
How do nerve cells compute? This fundamental question drives LMU neurobiologists led by Andreas Herz. They have now presented a novel method to disentangle complex neural processes in a much more powerful way than was previously possible.
How are the images cast on the retina reassembled in the brain? Researchers in Munich and Tübingen find that processing of visual stimuli occurs at the earliest waystation on the way to the visual cortex – but not all are treated equally.
Just like last year CorTec has made it to the list of the most innovative companies selected by German business journal brand eins and Statista. Together with 16 other companies in the medical devices industry CorTec may now bear the title “Innovator 2019”.
Göttingen researchers explain how the eye recognizes motion: Special nerve cells in the eye indicate a shift in the line of sight. Groups of these cells contribute to the recognition of small eye movements and help to keep the viewing direction stable so that the image of the environment becomes clear.
