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

Bernstein Sparks Workshop on Active Perceptual Memory

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

Our new paper made it onto the cover of J Neurophysiol

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

Workshop on inverted encoding models (featuring Tommy Sprague)

We are happy to announce a forthcoming workshop on Inverted Encoding Models for Neural Data. We have invited Tommy Sprague from John Serences group at UCSD to give a workshop on the methods behind his latest work on visual memory and spatial priority maps (see here and here). A review of this work, which includes an overview of … Continue reading Workshop on inverted encoding models (featuring Tommy Sprague)
