We are funded for another 3 years to continue our collaboration with Tatjana Tchumatchenko and embark to new experiment-modelling interactions under the framework of the SPP2041 “Computational Connectomics”.
We are very happy that we received funding for 4 more years to continue our projects in the SFB1233 on “Natural stimuli for mice” and “Feedforward and feedback processing in visual thalamus” together with Thomas Euler, Philipp Berens, and Matthias Bethge at the University of Tübingen. Thanks to our reviewers and thanks to the DFG for funding.
Over the summer, we have revised our manuscript on “Robust effects of corticothalamic feedback during naturalistic visual stimulation”. It now includes specific optogenetic suppression of V1 CT neurons using stGtACR2 and many new analyses.
Our new preprint on how corticothalamic feedback affects visual spatial integration in mouse dLGN available at bioRxiv:
We will present at Gordon Research Conference Thalamo-Cortical Interactions (Ventura, California, Feb 2020).
We are co-organizers and present at DFG-funded conference on Subcortico-cortical LOOPS in sensory processing and perception (Berlin, March 2020)
