Welcome to a new seminar in the StratNeuro Lunch Seminar Series on Monday 6 February 2023 in J3:07 Sune Bergström lecture hall (Karolinska University Hospital). You can also join the seminar via Zoom.

"Sensory maps in visual cortex and superior colliculus"

Jens Kremkow, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Neuroscience Research Center and Computational Neuroscience Berlin, Germany

Jens Kremkow is a group leader in the Neuroscience Research Center of the Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin and a member of the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin.

His lab focuses on understanding the mechanisms of how the different cell-types and neural circuits in the brain are organized and dynamically interact to process sensory information and mediate behavior. To that end, his group employs an integrative framework, combining brain circuit analysis approaches in behaving animals with advanced data analysis and computational modeling.
