We are most delighted that Marvin Seifert has just passed his PhD viva!

For his thesis, which was done in collaboration with Daniel Osorio, Marvin looked at what the chicken eye tells the chicken brain. Combining MEA recordings with patterend spectral stimulation he worked out lots of exciting and new things in the way that birds process spectral information. Poster teaser below, watch this space for paperz!

Thank you to Almut Kelber and Miguel Maravall for serving as examiners!
