Scientific topic: Signal Processing


Field of Research

We are investigating general principles of signal processing in sensory systems using a combined experimental and theoretical approach. Studying the periphery of sensory systems has the very important advantage that we exactly know what stimuli the neurons naturally receive. Furthermore, from behavioral studies we also know what features of the stimuli are important for the organism and thus have to be extracted by the sensory system.
