Our studies aim to uncover neuronal mechanisms related to visual perception and learning. Further we address the influence of excitability on neuromodulation, as well as the associated reorganization of early sensory brain maps. We investigate how spatiotemporal patterns of activity reflect short-term plastic changes and how working memory traces influence expectation and decision processes. Our imaging method is unique in its capability of recording electrical activity of neuronal populations at once and thus provides access to the complex dynamics observed within the brain’s network.
