FOR 2812 - Constructing scenarios of the past: A new framework in episodic memory

We are excited to announce that the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) has approved funding for the research unit FOR 2812 "Constructing scenarios of the past: A new framework in episodic memory". Work on this project will commence in July 2019 led by Prof. Sen Cheng.

The research unit will study the cognitive and neuronal mechanisms underlying the constructed scenarios that make up episodic memory. It will employ and combine approaches from Philosophy, Psychology as well as Experimental and Computational Neuroscience.


The Institut für Neuroinformatik (INI) is a central research unit of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We aim to understand the fundamental principles through which organisms generate behavior and cognition while linked to their environments through sensory systems and while acting in those environments through effector systems. Inspired by our insights into such natural cognitive systems, we seek new solutions to problems of information processing in artificial cognitive systems. We draw from a variety of disciplines that include experimental approaches from psychology and neurophysiology as well as theoretical approaches from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering and applied computer science.
