We just received good news from the Wiener Wissenschafts-, Forschungs- und Technologiefonds (WWTF, in English this translates to the Viennese Science, Research, and Technology Fund). Our grant propsal “Algorithms, neural circuitry, and genetics of high-level visual behavior in the fly” was selected for funding.

Together with the ERC Starting Grant FlyVisualCircuits we received a few months ago, the lab is off to a great start.

Great news: my lab received an ERC Starting Grant for the project FlyVisualCircuits! This will allow growing to critical mass to get some exciting work done quickly.

I recently took the time to go over some math for our new virtual reality system.
