Together with Ignacio Polti and Christian Doeller, I have written a review on sequence memory in the hippocampus and entorhinal cortex. It’s now out in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience.


My first blog post (written in German) on virtual reality in neuroscience and psychology research is out on SciLogs!


Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting postponed to 2021.
