In my project, I investigate the role of corticothalamic feedback for spatial integration in mouse dLGN.

I am interested in robust visual processing (SFB1233) of feedforward and feedback signals in the mouse thalamus (dLGN) in a joint project with our Tübingen collaborators Thomas Euler and Philipp Berens.

I am investigating connectivity schemes between inhibitory and excitatory neurons in visual cortex together with our collaborators from the Tchumatchenko lab. Our project is part of the SPP 2041 – Computational Connectomics.

My research explores how visual processing in the thalamocortical circuit is modulated by spontaneous behaviours and arousal. This is done via analysis of in vivo electrophysiological and behavioural data recorded in mice, as well as a mathematical modelling approach.
