Closing the loop: tracking and perturbing behaviour of individuals in a group in real-time

Closing the loop: tracking and perturbing behaviour of individuals in a group in real-time

Quantitative description and selective perturbation of individual animals in a social group is prerequisite for understanding complex social behaviors. Tracking behavioral patterns of individuals in…

Circuit Motifs for Contrast-Adaptive Differentiation in Early Sensory Systems: The Role of Presynaptic Inhibition and Short-Term Plasticity

Circuit Motifs for Contrast-Adaptive Differentiation in Early Sensory Systems: The Role of Presynaptic Inhibition and Short-Term Plasticity

In natural signals, such as the luminance value across of a visual scene, abrupt changes in intensity value are often more relevant to an organism…

Own-race and own-species advantages in face perception: a computational view

Own-race and own-species advantages in face perception: a computational view

The frequency to which an organism is exposed to a particular type of face influences recognition performance. For example, Asians are better in individuating Asian…
