Major Subjects
Attention is a cognitive process of selectively concentrating on one aspect of the environment while ignoring other things. We, employ attention to various aspects of our visual environment, which can either be described by a spatial location, a feature or an event in time depending on behavioral requirements.

PROJECTS / RESEARCH

Titel of Thesis "Development of novel genetic-environmental mouse models of schizophrenia and their employment for new treatment approaches."

During my PhD years I have been working on three major projects: (1) The effects of erythropoietin on hippocampal function; (2) The influence of chronic psychosocial stress (an environmental cofactor that plays an important role in the development of psychiatric disorders, e.g. schizophrenia) on behavioural read-outs of cognitive performance; (3) The effects of erythropoietin variants (HIF stabilizers) on hippocampal memory. The results of the first project were published end of last year in BMC Biology. It turned out to be the most accessed publication of this journal within the timeframe of three months upon appearance (over 4000 accesses within 3 months). The second project has been finalized this year and published in Behavioural Brain Research. The third publication has been recently submitted and will most likely be published within this year.
