1. Comprehensive analysis of neuronal mechanisms for spatially-directed attention.
2. MAC-Brain - Developing a Multi-scale account of Attentional Control as the constraining interface between vision and action.
The lab comprises two set-ups for neurophysiological experiments, one of them operational for multi-unit recordings, including one Plexon Inc. MAP 16-channel system for spike discrimination and storage; MAP RASPUTIN software for online spike discrimination; one NAN 4-channel electrode drive system; two David Kopf Instruments Micropositioners; one eye-tracking system based on implanted scleral search coils; two Crist Instruments systems for control and delivery of liquid rewards; NIMH Cortex software (VCortex 2) for online control of the experimental paradigm.
It also comprehends one fully equipped surgery room; two housing rooms; three experimental chairs; three experimental boxes.
