Applications are now closed. We are looking for a number of motivated students who would like to become part of the lab as student research assistants (Studentische Hilfskraft, SHK), starting on January 1st, 2021 (duration: 2 years). We have a total of four positions available. Two of these positions will be working entirely at the … Continue reading Open student research assistant positions (SHK)
We are already one month into the new year, the semester is about to end, and we are preparing a series of new experiments. Time to look back for a moment. Adu, Kai and Yigit have finished their lab rotations with us and are moving on. Also Frederik is heading in a new direction and … Continue reading New ways emerging from and into the lab in 2020.
Our team is now complete for the upcoming semester. We warmly welcome Kai Standvoß, a PhD fellow of the Einstein Center Neurosciences, to his lab rotation and Yiğit Erigüç who will do an internship on intra-saccadic vision. And of course, welcome back Susie Bryan who is going to tackle her master's thesis.
A warm welcome to Adu Matory and Anna Melkonyan, who join us during their lab rotation. Both are studying at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience and we are very much looking forward to having them in the lab.
We say goodbye to Carlos. He was the first member of Martin's Emmy Noether group and since then worked mainly on learning in the oculomotor system. Carlos now joins the group of Simone Kühn at the Max Planck Institute in Berlin. We wish Carlos all the best for this next step. In addition, two of … Continue reading Busy summer: Say goodbye
As everyone is busy writing manuscripts only two of us—Alex and Martin—made it to the annual Vision Sciences Society Meeting in St. Pete Beach, Florida, this year. But the two of us had a productive and inspiring time. Alex and Martin presented a poster on the correlates of visual awareness in microsaccadic inhibition. The resonance was very positive and … Continue reading Back from VSS — thanks for all the good feedback
