Martin is part of the organising team of the 40th European Conference on Visual Perception, which is about to take off. From August 27 to 31, Berlin will be the host of almost 1200 vision scientists. We have an exciting program, including four great keynote speakers. Come join us! Check out the website: http://www.ecvp.org/2017/ PS: MR also … Continue reading Coming up: ECVP 2017 in Berlin!
Science of Intelligence (SCIoI)
Martin is part of the highly interdisciplinary group of PIs involved in the preparation of the pre-application for an Excellence Cluster Science of Intelligence (short: SCIoI). Over the last year, we have worked in a group of >20 PIs from fields across a broad range of disciplines (biology, computer vision, educational research, philosophy, physics, psychology, … Continue reading Science of Intelligence (SCIoI)
Opinion article on Oculomotor prediction in psychosis in press in TiCS
Together with Katy Thakkar (Michigan State University) and Vaibhav Diwadkar (Wayne State University), we just wrote an opinion piece on the role of corollary discharge in psychosis, and how prediction in the oculomotor system may help us understand the complex polygenic disorder schizophrenia. The review is going to be published in one of the next issues of … Continue reading Opinion article on Oculomotor prediction in psychosis in press in TiCS
Workshop on Learning at the Interface of Vision and Oculomotor Control
On September 20-21, 2016, we will host a workshop on Learning at the interface of vision and oculomotor control. It will be a satellite event of the Bernstein Conference.
In press: Spotlight on Remapping attention pointers
Because the eyes move, the correspondence between each location in the world and each location on the retina is arbitrary. From one fixation to the next, each object changes places on the retina. Both psychophysical and neurophysiological studies aim to better understand how we keep track of locations as the eyes move about. Yet the links between neural and behavioral findings remain obscure. Inspired by … Continue reading In press: Spotlight on Remapping attention pointers
New grant with Tamara Watson (Western Sydney, Australia)
We just obtained notice that Universities Australia and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) will fund our collaboration with Tamara Watson at the University of Western Sydney, Australia. The grant supports travel costs in both directions. Tamara will join our lab in Berlin during her sabbatical in the spring of 2016. Martin will have funds to travel to Sydney in … Continue reading New grant with Tamara Watson (Western Sydney, Australia)
In press: What draws the line between perception and cognition?
Together with Michael Dambacher, Martin has submitted a comment on the recent theoretical paper "Cognition does not affect perception: Evaluating the evidence for ‘top-down’ effects" by Chaz Firestone and Brian Scholl (Yale University). The comment has now been accepted for publication. It will appear along with a number of other comments and a response by the authors in a (hopefully … Continue reading In press: What draws the line between perception and cognition?
New paper on remapping in schizophrenia
Our collaboration with Katy Thakkar and her colleagues at Utrecht University has just assumed tangible shape. Our manuscript "Failure to use corollary discharge to remap visual target locations is associated with psychotic symptom severity in schizophrenia" has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Neurophysiology (which is becoming my favorite journal). In our study, we compared … Continue reading New paper on remapping in schizophrenia
