New grant support for Optical Imaging Group

We announce funding of our new project in the framework of the ERA-Net Neuron Scheme, supported by the European Commission (EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation “Horizon 2020”). “I-See” - Improving intracortical visual prostheses  - The project brings together scientists from Germany, Switzerland, and Canada, with expertise in different fields and complementary experimental methods, and a strong backbone in computational and theoretical neuroscience. The project is funded for 3 years with 900.000 €.

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.
