Towards a better understanding of the brain

In this introductory talk I will give an overview about what my previews projects have been, what I am currently working on and what my interests for future projects are.
Already before graduating from school I was fascinated by the idea of neuronal implants. Since that time I am steadily following my goal to work on fully integrated BCI-systems and intelligent prosthetics. Before my present journey in academia I spent 9 years in the maritime security industry. After passing a four-year composite-studies program, with an IT-specialist degree and an engineering degree in information technology / telecommunications (technical informatics), I stayed in my apprenticing company to work as system engineer for further five years. In 2017 I graduated from the Neuroscience Master program at the University of Oldenburg.
Currently I am the senior engineer for the MEG system of the neuroimaging core facility at the University of Oldenburg.
During the master’s program I worked on Matlab projects for electrophysiological/voltage sensitive dye experiments and was engaged in teaching Matlab for biological questions as a tutor. Finally, I utilized the gathered expertise in my master thesis project, affiliated with the Hearing4All cluster, to analyse the functional relation between auditory stimuli and neural responses from electrophysiological deep brain recordings in the basal ganglia of human subjects by means of time frequency statistics and linear regression models.
My research focus in my current position is the development of noise cancellation methods in Python, which are aimed at tiny vibrations interfering the MEG device.

In der Regel sind die Vorträge Teil von Lehrveranstaltungsreihen der Universität Bremen und nicht frei zugänglich. Bei Interesse wird um Rücksprache mit dem Sekretariat unter sek-ric(at)dfki.de gebeten.
