Research Group Neurophysiology


Main organisation:Department of Neurosciences
Lifecycle:1 Jan 1995  →  Today
Organisation profile:

The Research Group Neurophysiology consists of 2 laboratories: the Laboratory for Neuro- and Psychophysiology and the Laboratory of Auditory Neurophysiology.

Lab. for Neuro- and Psychophysiology The neuronal mechanisms underlying visual perception and memory. - Single cell properties in striate and extrastriate cortex of primates and higher mammals. - Link between single cells and perceptual discrimination performance of humans and animal models. - Neurochemical anatomy of visual cortex. - Single cells and evoked potentials. - Computational, psychophysical and physiological study of optical flow analysis and shape from motion. - Modelling of cortical receptive field and movement detectors. - Functional mapping of human visual system with PET and fMRI. - Functional mapping of visual attention and memory with PET and fMRI. - Metabolic and functional mapping in primates.
