Welcome to the Gollisch Lab Website

We are part of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University Medical Center Göttingen. Our research focuses on the question how the neural network of the retina in the eye processes and encodes visual information. In our work, we tightly combine experiments and theory. We record the activity of neurons in isolated retinas while stimulating the photoreceptors with light patterns, and we use modeling and statistics to understand the relationship between visual stimuli and neural responses.
