Event description

Description

One of the strangest things in daily commute is that most of the time you don’t even remember how you got to your destination. While you would think that in such cases your brain is pretty much switched off, in fact it is very busy behind the scenes. As you have a cognitive map of the places you’ve already visited and as (normally) it doesn’t change much, you don’t have to actively perceive the details of your route and you only snap out of this “autopilot mode” when extraordinary actions are needed.

In this meetup we will explore human perception and spatial navigation. We will learn how the hippocampus, possibly the most well-studied brain area, encodes space and time through specialised neurons and rhythms in the brain and Andreas Fraunberger will explain how vision becomes perception and how developments in neuroscience can help to create better virtual environment (VR) experiences.

As usual, the tickets include a free drink, snacks, interesting talks, neuroscience news, and the good vibe. The language of the event is English.
