Perception in Context and its Neural Basis
DFG: Research Training Group 2175
The Research Training Group 2175 combines expertise from multiple neuroscience disciplines into a training program for doctoral researchers working on contextual effects on sensory perception and their underlying neurophysiological basis. The core research idea is to pinpoint similarities and differences of context-dependent perception and its neuronal representation in selected and well-accessible paradigms, and thereby work towards a unified framework of contextual processing. To meet the requirements of the highly interdisciplinary research projects, doctoral candidates have diverse backgrounds, ranging from mathematics, physics, computer science and engineering to biology, medical sciences and psychology.
