Optical Imaging Lab participates in a newly founded Research Training Group (RTG)

Today the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) published their decisions regarding establisment and continuation of "Graduierten-Kollegs". We are happy to be part of the newly funded RTG called "MoNN&Di" (Monoaminergic Neuronal Networks & Disease).

The goal of MoNN&Di is to create a focused 5 year doctoral training programme that enables scrutiny of how monoaminergic neuromodulators influence neuronal circuits and shape behavioral responses.

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.
