My work is committed to describe the structure of the brain in a simple way. Since the brain is complex it is better described by the mechanisms that shape it. Intrinsic mechanisms are specified by the genetic code, or by the programmer. Activity-driven learning mechanisms are the contribution of the environment.
The brain is best understood by an integrative view of the many different coding and learning strategies in its diverse structures. While computational neuroscience is often highly specialised and intelligent robotics AI-oriented, the field in between offers an opportunity to combine and validate models of neuroscience.
At the FIAS in Frankfurt, I have participated in the proposals of the projects Bernstein Focus: Neurotechnology Frankfurt and IM-CLeVeR. Now I am taking part in the RobotDoC and the KSERA projects and further proposals.
