INI Keynote at Brain Stimulation Conference in Vancouver

Dirk Janckewho directs the Optical Imaging Group at the INI, held a plenary lecture at the 3rd International Brain Stimulation Conference, 24.-27. February, in Vancouver, Canada. Brain stimulation methods, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), offer new approaches to therapeutics for brain disorders. Jancke's group uses an innovative imaging method with voltage-sensitive dye to track at submilimeter range and high temporal resolution, TMS-induced plastic functional changes across the brain.

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.
