Nov 2023 Carolin Gehr joins as a lab manager, and Livia has a big smile on her face.
Oct 2023 The coordination project of our DFG-funded SPP2411 on LOOPs kicks off as the wonderful Fauve de Arnal
joins the lab.
Zhengjie Yang, Atri Ghosh, and Anurupa Karmakar join the lab to work on statistical learning and
are already asking lots of critical questions.
Sept 2023 Chi, Hugo and Alexandra's paper accepted in Current Research in Neurobiology.
The inferior colliculus does statistical learning. Plasticity upon unsupervised exposure to predictable,
but not unpredictable, context-sound associations leads to sharper spectral representation.
June 2023 Our KITP program on statistical learning begins in the beautiful UCSB campus!
May 2023 Chi's behavioural study is published in iScience
May 2023 Irene Onorato joins the lab as postdoc to work in cortico-subcortical loops, as part of the Einstein Foundation grant with David McAlpine
April 2023 Ahmed Alramly joins the lab as a BCCN intern
March 2023 David McAlpine and I publish a commentary about 'Listening loops and the adapting auditory brain' in FiNS
Nov 2022 Xing Xiao joins the lab as postdoc to work in cortico-hippocampal interactions during memory consolidation, as part of the SFB1315
Oct 2022 Two new preprints uploaded. From very different perspectives, both find evidence for long lasting effects of neutral exposure to predictable sounds in auditory responses with consequences on subsequent learning.

Sept 2022 Poppy Barsby and Alexandra Ertman submit their master theses after a very engaged period in which they worked very hard and produced beautiful work. Congratulations!
June 2022 Berlin LOOPs conference!!! finally https://www.brainloops.de/loops-berlin-conference
April 2022. Malinda Tantirigama joins the lab as Einstein post-doc to work together with David McAlpine (Macquarie U, Sidney) on a very exciting project. We are very much looking forward to see where he takes this new challenge given his breath of knowledge and wide repetoire of tools.
April 2022 Poppy Barsby and Alexandra Ertman join the lab as master students. But they are familiar faces here since they have been around for a while doing wonderful work!
March 2022. Our DFG Priority Programme "LOOPS: cortico-subcortical interactions for adaptive cognition" has been granted.
More on the coming public call soon!
