New Research Training Group in Munich

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) funds a new Research Training Group on "Perception in Context and its Neural Basis" in Munich (May 2016).

We do not perceive the world as it is, but filtered and altered through our expectations and intentions. Many aspects of the function and mechanisms of these contextual changes are not understood, neither at the level of perception nor at the level of neural activity. To research the complex underlying principles in greater depth, representatives of a number of different disciplines will work together in the Research Training Group “Perception in Context and its Neural Basis”. Participating disciplines range from neurobiology, psychology and medicine to computational neuroscience.

Spokesperson of the Research Training Group is Christian Leibold (BCCN Munich, BFNL plasticity of neural dynamics, D-USA Collaboration, LMU München).
