Exciting news! The German Research Council (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft; DFG) has awarded me a 2-year Research Fellowship for my proposal entitled "Multi-scale Adaptation in Sensory Brain Pathways". The work will be carried out within the research group of Dr. Samuel Solomon (Visual Neuroscience Lab) at the Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience, University College London.
Come by my Poster (O45) at this year's SfN Annual Meeting in Chicago on Wednesday, 21 Oct. 2015, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm. I will talk about "Population receptive field changes in hV5/MT+ of healthy subjects with simulated visual field scotomas".
On Thursday, 15 Oct. 2015, 6.15 pm, I will give a lecture at the Children‘s Hospital Lecture Hall in Tübingen, as part of the Attempto Prize 2015 award. The title of my talk will be "Functional organization of human visual areas following lesions of the primary visual cortex".
Details here. See you there.
Excited to receive this year's Attempto Prize for young neuroscientists from the University of Tübingen for our publication "Population receptive field analysis of the primary visual cortex complements perimetry in patients with homonymous visual field defects" (Papanikolaou et al, PNAS, 2015). The award (€10000 to support research expenses) will be presented on Wednesday, 14 Oct. 2015, 2.30 pm, at the University of Tübingen as part of the Members’ Meeting of the Universitätsbund. More details about the work and the prize can be found here (only in German).
