How does rhythmic neural activity of the brain and constantly changing attention create a stable, coherent picture of our surroundings? What ensures that this image leads to a movement or action and how does the brain abstract and generalize? What role do experience and previous knowledge play with the combination of perception and action?
Dr. Dr. Randolph Helfrich from the HIH receives up to 1.5 million euros from the DFG's Emmy Noether Programme for the search for the answers to the rhythmic building blocks of human attention. With this funding, he will set up and lead his own research group at the HIH in the coming years.
