Neural Computations for Vision

Date: Thursday, June 13, 2019 11:00 - 12:00
Speaker: Markus Meister (Caltech, Division of Biology and Biological Engineering)
Location: Mondi Seminar Room 2, Central Building
Series: Life Sciences Seminar
Host: Maximilian Jösch
Contact: SIX Rita

Abstract:

The task of the visual system is to extract from the onslaught of raw image information (~1 Gbit/s) the little knowledge that really matters to us (~20 bit/s). I will discuss what we are learning about this process in the early neural circuits of the visual system, and how the resulting insights can help devise prostheses for the blind.
