For the DFG SPP 2205 project „Evolving to be flexible - optimizing task-dependent information processing in the visual system“ a postdoctoral position is available in the Kreiter lab immediately. See: The position is fulltime and is initially limited to three years. In the experiments we will investigate whether and how visual circuits allow the flexible combination of signal streams from different places in the visual field in a task-dependent manner. In order to reveal features of neural network flexibility we will use laminar multicontact probes in multiple visual areas.
