Jens-Oliver Muthmann

I studied physics at the University of Freiburg and did my diploma work on doubly stochastic point processes under guidance of Stefan Rotter. Afterwards, I joined the Erasmus Mundus EuroSPIN programme for a joint PhD between the groups of Upinder Bhalla (NCBS, Bangalore) and Matthias Hennig (University of Edinburgh). My research there focused on spike detection in recordings with high density microelectrode arrays and network dynamics in dissociated cultures. I joined the group of Alex Huk in 2017. I am currently interested in neural representations of visual stimuli in the dorsal stream during natural tracking behavior. In particular, I aim to study the representation of information that arrives with different temporal delays, the response to saccadic eye movements and to what extent stimuli are predicted by the brain.
