Sanjeev's paper out in Science Advances

We show that the integration of information across natural images can predict how beautiful they appear to us! Here's the paper, and here's a (German) press release.

Lixiang's Paper out in Science Advances

Lixiang published his paper on alpha-dynamics that support the integration of visual information. Will he get a tattoo of the DOI?


September 2023

Ilker, Philipp, & Susan join the lab!

Ilker Duymaz, Philipp Flieger, and Susan Ajith joined the lab as PhD students. The ERC project is finally getting started. Welcome!
