OI Group extends Imaging Portfolio

With a budget of approximately 700.000€ our group will be equipped with a state-of-the-art 2-photon imaging setup. This supplements our wide-field imaging approaches with high-resolution in vivo imaging of single cells. The additional grant support is received in the framework of the EU-funded ERA-Net NEURON project „I-see - Improving intracortical visual prostheses“, where our group contributes with cortical microstimulation studies.

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.
