Welcome, I am Alexander Mathis. My main research interests comprise the neural basis of olfactory and motor behaviors. More specifically, I am currently interested in odor-guided navigation, the olfactory cocktail party problem as well as motor control and adaptation. I have been awarded a Marie-Curie fellowship (Department news) .
I work as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of
Matthias Bethge at the
February 2018 I am very excited to present work on pose estimation with deep learning, modeling of the proprioceptive system, and a hierarchical control model to understand sensorimotor cortex at the Neural Control of Movement Conference 2018 in Santa Fe - I hope to see you in May (see Abstracts for more details)
November 2017 A collaborative study between Dulac, Schnitzer & Murthy labs on coding of social stimuli in the amygdala was just published (see publications).
September 2017 Together with Andreas Herz and Martin Stemmler I wrote a review covering conceptual spaces, hierarchical codes, population vectors, ... (see reviews).
June 2017: I visited my high school to talk about deep art, neuroscience, "being a scientist"... It was great to be back after all those years!
Mar 2017: First motor study with Mackenzie Mathis and Naoshige Uchida published (see publications).
