New bioRxiv preprint

Very proud to share a new bioRxiv preprint, where we explore how efficient coding can improve predictions of neural responses to noise stimuli. This work resulted from a fantastic collaboration with Thomas Euler’s lab, as part of the SFB1233 on Robust Vision.

Qiu, Y., Klindt, D.A., Szatko, K.P., Gonschorek, D., Hoefling, L., Schubert, T., Busse, L., Bethge, M., and Euler, T. (2022). Efficient coding of natural scenes improves neural system identification. BioRxiv,

Welcome to Anna Kryshtal

A warm welcome to GSN student Anna Kryshtal who will spend the next few weeks in our group. In her lab rotation, she will contribute to our project on estimating connectivity from extracellular activity.

Welcome to two new doctoral researchers

We welcome Ann H Kotkat and Lukas Meyerolbersleben who joined our lab and the GSN for their doctoral studies. Both Ann and Lukas have done their MSc thesis with us – looking forward very much to continuing working together!

Cosyne 2022

Laura is very honoured and proud to serve as co-chair with Tim Vogels of the Programm Committee for Cosyne 2022 (17 – 20 March). See many of you in Lisbon, Portugal – hopefully in person!

Congratulations to Lukas Meyerolbersleben!

Congratulations to Lukas Meyerolbersleben for successfully defending his MSc thesis on narrow-band gamma oscillations in mouse primary visual cortex. Enjoy a few weeks time off, they are very well deserved. We are very much looking forward to continuing the work as part of your doctoral studies!

Welcome to the lab

We extend a warm welcome to GSN MSc students Ayshan Aliyeva and Miranda Popescu, who have joined us on 13.09.21 for their lab rotations!

Congratulations to Emma Müller-Seydlitz

Congratulations to Emma Müller-Seydlitz for successfully defending her BSc thesis on firing properties of Suppressed-by-Contrast Cells in dLGN and V1. All the best for your MSc studies at Oxford University!
