Alexander Kroner

PhD Candidate

Research Interests: Visual processing; Attention modelling; Deep learning; Neuroimaging

About me: With a background in Cognitive Science (University of Osnabrück) and Artificial Intelligence (Maastricht University), I conduct my PhD research at the intersection of neural network modelling and neuroimaging within the Human Brain Project. My work aims at developing deep learning solutions towards visual saliency prediction and integrating the results in a closed sensorimotor loop from natural visual input to eye movements. Furthermore, I am interested in linking computational models to neural activity by encoding and decoding the representational content in fMRI data.
