Biology Seminar Series - Deciphering synaptic mechanisms of learning & memory

Mammalian brains are complex structures mediating complex behavioural tasks. It is one of the major challenges for modern Neuroscience to find out how the mammalian brain processes sensory information in order to generate the appropriate behavioural response.

Our brain is constantly bombarded with sensory information coming from the ears, eyes, nose, tongue body surface, and interior. Most of this information is filtered pre-attentively in order to allow the brain to allocate its neural resources on focussing on salient information. Dr. Schmid’s research concentrates on these early stages of sensory information processing and filtering.
