For Research. For Berlin.

The neuroscientific project "Functional Role of Feedback in Sensory Representation" aims to better understand the neuronal basis of sensory perception. Cellular mechanisms are examined in the combination of sensory perceptions with internal already existing knowledge about these sensory perceptions. The hypothesis: so-called "pyramidal cells" sitting deep in the cerebral cortex are responsible for this. The project is being carried out by the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in cooperation with the Technische Universität Berlin.
