Auch diesen Monat haben wir uns wieder für ein “Duett-Interview” entschieden. Diesmal mit einem Professor und einem Doktoranden. Hier die Antworten des frisch promovierten Nachwuchsforschers:
1. I am…
A PhD student of Computational Neuroscience at the Bernstein Center Freiburg. I study sensory processing in brain networks.
2. This month I want to concentrate on
Defending my PhD thesis. I started my PhD more than four years ago, and I am now concluding the scientific research I did during this period.
3. An current scientific highlight for me
We have recently elucidated aspects of visual processing in rodents (here is another recent publication). We are currently trying to extend these results to other modalities, species, and cognitive functions in our future research.
5. What I plan to do besides science this month
Investing more time on a project I have recently started: it is not less challenging than a Phd; it leads to comparable sleeplessnesses; and needs more care and attention. We have a new-born baby.
