Research Summary

We examine spatio-temporal stimulus representations in vivo. Using a combination of behavioral tests, electro-, and optophysiological techniques we study how spatial and temporal aspects of these stimulus representations drive downstream neurons and finally predict behavior. A genetic model for human epilepsy allows us to extend these measurements to determine changes of population activity in the diseased brain
