Modelling of Cognitive Processes



We investigate the neuronal basis of cognitive abilities such as perception, learning and memory, and decision making. To this end, we use mathematical and computational methods to bridge gaps between the microscopic level of synapses, neurons and neuronal networks and the cognitive level. A particular focus lies on how changes on the neuronal level — for example synaptic plasticity — allow our brain to dynamically adjust to environmental requirements. The junior research group of Marianne Maertens uses psychophysical and computational methods to study the principles of visual perception. 

News: Our application for a collaborative research grant with Matthew Larkum’s lab was successful! Thanks to the Einstein Foundation for this great opportunity, and congratulations to Filip for this success!


Upcoming events:

The 'Current Topics in Computational Neuroscience' lecture starts October, 17th and will take place in the BCCN lecture hall.
