New project funded on the dynamics of oculomotor plasticity

We just got a grant accepted, supporting a collaboration with Thérèse Collins (Université Paris Descartes). They needed an acronym, so we named it DOMINION: Dynamics of OculoMotor adaptation and its INteraction with perceptION. That was the hardest part of the work. The project has been selected as one of 13 collaborative projects, co-funded by the  DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) and the ANR (L’Agence … Continue reading New project funded on the dynamics of oculomotor plasticity
