Title Short Description Contact
Computational Studies of the Role of Semantic Representation in Episodic Memory The goal of this project is to extend these results to new object types and classes of objects. A good command of Python is required. Vinita Samarasinghe, M.Sc.
Generically trained SFA networks for cognitive mapping in simulated rodents This project will assess potential advantages of generically trained SFA networks in cognitive mapping of virtual environments. An excellent command of Python (including numpy, matplotlib, scipy) and C/C++ is required. Experience with the Blender simulation environment would be advantageous. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Walther
Modeling Enhanced Replay of Neuronal Sequences in the Hippocampus Modeling Enhanced Replay of Neuronal Sequences in the Hippocampus Dr. Amir Hossein Azizi
Necessary and Sufficient Behavioral Evidence for Episodic Memory Traces The goal of this project is to identify what behavioral evidence would be necessary and sufficient to claim that a nonhuman species possesses episodic memory traces. The project requires background knowledge of memory and experience in developing philosophical analyses. Prof. Dr. Sen Cheng
Processing of Spatial Information in the Hippocampal Circuit In this project, we study whether the responses of neurons in the hippocampal sublayers (DG, CA3, and CA1) resemble the responses of recorded place cells. Knowledge of the programming language Python is required. Mehdi Bayati, M.Sc.
Robust Generation of Spatio-temporal Activity Patterns in Neuronal Networks The goal of this project is to better understand the sensitivity of the various neural network models to noise. Mehdi Bayati, M.Sc.
Self-organization of spatially tuned neural activity in volumetric virtual environments This project is is geared towards extending work of Franzius et al. (2007) to cope with volumetric cognitive mapping based on Slow Feature Analysis methods. An excellent command of Python (including numpy, matplotlib, scipy) and C/C++ is required. Experience with the Blender simulation environment would be advantageous. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Walther
