back to Research Neuromorphic Computing & Robotics Neuromorphic computing is an interdisciplinary approach that provides an energy efficient alternative to traditional computer architectures. Inspired by various fields such as biology, physics and computer science its goal is to mimic a neuron-based brain architecture in electronic circuits. In our lab we utilize this technology to implement […]
back to Research Sensory Processing & Energy Homeostasis Olfaction is a major research topic in sensory neuroscience. We study the neural computation underlying olfactory processing and multisensory integration in the insect brain combining experimental and computational modeling approaches. In biologically realistic neural network models we achieve the transformation from peripheral dense coding to efficient and […]
back to Research Motor Control in Health & Disease During voluntary movements, motor commands and sensory feedback operate in an orchestrated manner to enable the appropriate motor action. A lack of proprioceptive feedback leads to a poorly coordinated action, indicating the functional significance of sensory feedback. The motor cortex (MC) uses sensory information for the […]
back to Research Plasticity, Learning & Memory Insects are well-suited model organisms to study fundamental principles of neural plasticity that underlie memory formation, decision making and behavioral control. We contribute to this research field by investigating different forms of learning mainly in the olfactory pathway with a specific interest in inter-individual differences. To this end, […]
