Here is on overview over recent scientific findings of the Bernstein Network.

Tracking the traces of light in the short-lived memory of the eyes

The traces light leaves on the retina close gaps in visual perception and provide continuity in knowing what is where as we move.

Colorful images – seen through the eyes of mice

Researchers at the University Medical Center Göttingen have studied how nerve cells in the eye react to different color combinations. They found special cells in the eyes of mice that respond particularly well to contrasts between green and ultraviolet light. This could enable the animals to see the horizon clearly and use it for orientation. The scientific paper was published in "Nature Communications".

From individual receptors towards whole-brain function

Researchers regard the overall distribution of receptors in the brain – the receptome – as a new approach for computer models that reproduce the function of the brain, and for diagnostics and therapy of mental disorders.
