ERC Starting Grant for Sarang Dalal

We congratulate Sarang Dalal who has received an ERC Starting Grant in the amount 1,5 Million Euros. His 5-year project is called “The retinae as windows to the brain: An oscillatory vision”. “In this project, we will examine in detail how neural oscillations in the human retina code visual information and facilitate communication with cerebral cortex for further processing”, explains Sarang Dalal. “The retina is not simply a sensor, but performs rather sophisticated processing of visual input and can in fact be considered a part of the brain. However, so far interactions between retina and cerebral cortex have remained virtually neglected in human visual neuroscience.”
