Postdoctoral Fellow Ingmar Kanitscheider

Center for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience

After obtaining my PhD in theoretical physics at the University of Amsterdam I was a postdoc in the lab of Alexandre Pouget, first at the University of Rochester and later at the University of Geneva in Switzerland. I joined UT Austin in August 2014. My work deals with a broad range of issues around probabilistic computation and representation in neurons, the impact of noise correlations on information, and probabilistic neural algorithms for navigation and map-building.
