Group 'Systemic Neurophysiology'

Auditory perception and memory in the neocortex

Our lab focuses on the function and plasticity of neuronal circuits. Specifically, we would like to know how sounds are represented in the auditory cortex and how these representations are transformed into long-term memory. This is fundamental in understanding the mind: memories of past experiences shape our personalities and influence our current perception.
