How memory sharpens perception

Richard Görler, Laurenz Wiskott, and Sen Cheng recently published their latest work in "Hippocampus". Using computational models their research presents new insights into the function of the medial temporal lobe and explains how memory sharpens perception. This research was primarily funded by the SFB 874.

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, in particular machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer vision.
