In their study, Lukas Hahn, Dmitry Balakhonov, Erica Fongaro, Andreas Nieder and Jonas Rose show that the neural mechanisms that limit working memory capacity in primates also limit working memory capacity in crows. By enabling such cross-species comparisons, they foster our understanding on cognitive computational constrains.
We are excited to announce that our next research colloquium starts on Friday, 5th November. This semester, several members of our lab are going present their projects and we are happy to have two guests giving their talks here at RUB in room GA 04/187!
In their latest publication, Aylin Apostel and Jonas Rose introduced RUBubbles – artificial stimuli which advance the research field of categorization learning. RUBubbles can be created and adjusted easily for various needs. Also, the RUBubblesAPP and all the code are freely available as open-source content.
See our new dispatch in Current Biology on exciting new work on avian navigation (https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1dHF93QW8RwoLh).
Ben-Yishay et al. identified head direction cells in the quail hippocampus and thus lay an important foundation for our understanding of avian navigation.
The new semester has started and we are looking forward to meeting you at our digital research colloquium starting on April 9th.
Join us for this semester’s digital research colloquium with interesting talks every second Friday!
In their new paper, Lukas Hahn and Jonas Rose show that measuring working memory on a behavioral level and investigating the underlying physiological processes can reveal qualitative and quantitative differences in cognition between different animal species.
Come meet us at our virtual posters at FENS!
Sad news. Due to the continuing spread of the Corona-virus we had to cancel the meeting at this time. We will find another time to make it happen. We will keep you posted and will update this page with the information for the event and the new registration.
We thank DFG for funding our new project Evolutionary Optimisation of Neuronal Processing
