Together with Science of Intelligence, we are participating in the Brain Awareness Week! Brain Awareness Week is a global campaign to spark public interest in brain research. In that context, we want to share some of our enthusiasm about (arguably) the human brain’s most important sense: vision. If you have ever wondered how we perceive … Continue reading Our event at Brain Awareness Week
The lab has relied on PsychToolbox from the start and we have often reached out to the main developer, Mario Kleiner, for additional functionality and received exceptional support. PsychToolbox is certainly one of the most valuable services to the vision science community. After years of discussions and uncertainty of how it could be made sustainable, … Continue reading We joined the new PsychToolbox community
Lisa and Martin have had the pleasure of reviewing Stefan van der Stigchel’s book “How Attention Works: Finding Your Way in a World of Distraction” (MIT Press). Check out their review here: https://journals.sagepub.com/toc/peca/49/7
Clara Kuper, student assistant in our lab, will moderate a panel and audience discussion on animal research and its ethical implications on April 24, 2017. The discussion will feature a number of first-class experts on animal research and welfare, including: Prof. Dr. Stefan Treue, Director of the German Primate Research Centre, Göttingen Prof. Dr. Christa Thöne-Reineke, Professor for … Continue reading Clara moderates panel discussion on Animal Research
We were happy to see that Steve Lewandowsky highlighted Betty's recent paper on feature-based attention and visual short-term memory at psychonomic.org! Here is a link to the blog.
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.
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
We are pleased to announce the Bernstein Sparks Workshop on Active Perceptual Memory. The goal of this workshop is to bring together recent developments in perceptual memory and active perception—in particular eye movements—to capitalize on the numerous potential empirical and theoretical interfaces between these fields of research. Where and when: Berlin, Germany, on October 26-27, 2015. … Continue reading Bernstein Sparks Workshop on Active Perceptual Memory
Just a short note: Martin has been interviewed in the (German) Bernstein blog "hirnnetze" (brain nets). You can find the brief entry here.
Our new paper in on remapping during attentive tracking of moving objects is about to appear in the Journal of Neurophysiology. Martin Szinte, postdoc in Heiner Deubel's lab in Munich and the lead author of the paper, designed a cover illustration that will adorn the journal's next three issues! Click on the image, to have a … Continue reading Our new paper made it onto the cover of J Neurophysiol
