At Journal of Vision, we have just announced a Special Issue accompanying the workshop "From Peripheral to Transsaccadic and Foveal Perception" (taking place in Rauischholzhausen Castle, Germany, August 14th - 16th, 2019). Submissions to the special issue are open to anyone in the field (not just participants of the workshop) and will be open through … Continue reading Special issue on Trans-saccadic perception in Journal of Vision
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.
The lab is growing. We warmly welcome Lea Krätzig and Aaron Vetter—two new student research assistants in the lab. They will try to fill the big shoes that Clara, Olga, and Jan have left vacant after finishing their studies. No reason to be sad. We are very happy that all three of them will stay … Continue reading New people in the lab—and old people in new positions
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
The new semester at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is just around the corner. Time to take a quick look at last summer. There are a number of new papers from the lab. Richard and Martin have published two. If you are interested in an fast algorithm to display gaze-contingent stimuli, then the following paper will be … Continue reading Busy summer: New papers
The next chapter of our fruitful collaboration with the amazing Katy Thakkar has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Neuroscience. Katy's talented student Beier Yao took the lead on this one. What this is about? People with schizophrenia sometimes experience abnormalities in a sense of agency, which may stem from abnormal sensory predictions about their own … Continue reading New J Neuro paper with Katy Thakkar: Structural thalamo-frontal hypoconnectivity is related to oculomotor corollary discharge dysfunction in schizophrenia
Science Of Intelligence is our ambitious plan to forge a new discipline aiming to understand intelligent behavior. Vision is a big part of it, and Martin is one of the 21 core PIs of this Cluster of Excellence. We have just put 23 positions (PhD and Postdoc) on various projects on the market. Apply if … Continue reading Apply for PhD and Postdoc positions at SCIoI (deadline: 15/02/2019)
Quite some time ago, our paper on perceptual learning during saccade preparation has been accepted for publication in Vision Research. This project started with an idea in 2010, innocently pitched at one of the legendary lunch lab meetings at Patrick Cavanagh's house in Paris. He had just asked me what I'd like to work on … Continue reading Now out: Perceptual learning while preparing saccades
We are happy to announce the publication of a new paper in the Journal of Neuroscience. Effective action in the presence of moving stimuli requires a prediction of their motion trajectory. To investigate the link between motion extrapolation for oculomotor programming and the perception of target position, we used the flash-grab effect to induce illusory … Continue reading New paper on the relation between motion extrapolation for eye movements and perceived position shifts
