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!
New manuscript on effects of pupil-linked arousal in dLGN under review
We have a new manuscript under review, which shows that dLGN firing mode is modulated across a range of time scales by the dynamics of the pupil signal.
Manuscript accepted for publication in Current Biology
Our manuscript on chromatic contrast in natural scenes has been accepted for publication in Current Biology. Thanks for the great collaboration with Thomas Euler’s lab and congratulations to everybody involved!
Revision of manuscript submitted back to Journal
Very happy that we could re-submit our revised version of
Revision of manuscript posted on bioRxiv
The revised version of our manuscript on the effects on corticothalamic feedback on dLGN spatial integration is out on bioRxiv. The most significant change is new triple-color tracing of the retinotopic organization of CT feedback in dLGN and visTRN.

Second funding period for our project in SPP2041
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”.
2nd funding period for our projects in SFB1233 “Robust Vision”
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.
