US German collaborative research funded

A collaborative US-German grant proposal in the CRCNS (Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience) program has just been accepted for support. The proposal links the labs of Prof. John Jeka at the University of Delaware and Prof. Schöner at the INI and develops "An experimental-computational approach to the integration of subtasks with a spinal reflex model of locomotion". Former INI student Dr. Hendrik Reimann is involved in the joint research as well. 

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.
