This June i was teaching at the NS&B (neural systems and behavior course) at the MBL (marine biological lab) in Woods Hole, MA USA. 2 weeks full of science, Continue reading “NEWS: NS&B 2017 @ Woods Hole”
I was at my first annual meeting of the Canadian association for neuroscience in Montreal and presented my research “Differential receptive field center-surround organization give rise to similar levels of neuronal correlations in three parallel sensory maps in the weakly electric fish Apteronotus leptorhynchus” as a poster. Despite the long title I had vivid discussion with colleagues about my work and would like to thank you all for the good input!
I was invited to the BIRS “Brain Dynamics and Statistics: Simulation versus Data” workshop in Banff, Canada.
This was a interdisciplinary group of people, including physicists, mathematicians, biostatisticians and experimental biologists interested in using computational modeling as an asset in experimental neuroscience. It was a great pleasure to meet and discuss recent and future projects. I talked about population coding and noise correlations.
One of my photographs made it to the cover of the Journal of Neuroscience:
J Neurosci Issue 2 2017
One of my shots has been published in the newspaper “Sueddeutsche Zeitung” (german) alongside an article about the 2013 JEB special issue on weakly electric fish
