NIPS and Kyoto, Japan

We are participating in an exciting visit to our long term collaborators at the National Institute for Physiological Sciences (NIPS) in Okazaki, Japan and Kyoto University, in Kyoto, Japan.

Our institute and the NIPS have been organising bilateral interactions with our Japanese colleagues for several years, and this facilitates exchange of talent and ideas between Japan and Germany. This is particularly beneficial because of the complementary strengths that exist between our respective institutes.

We are very excited to continue these interactions for many years to come.

At these events coming up this week, Ziad will talk about our work on visual representations in the primate superior colliculus, as well as about the influences of saccades on visual responses in the well-known phenomenon of saccadic suppression.
