We study how spatial information from multiple senses converges in the midbrain of mice. With a focus on how auditory information integrates with its visual counterparts, we employ in vitro patch-clamp electrophysiology, optogenetic-based circuit mapping, and anatomical tracing techniques. In collaboration with Prof. Dr. Benedikt Grothe at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, we also study the contextual dependence of spatial coding in the auditory cortex, employing chronic in vivo two-photon calcium imaging and behavioural training paradigms in head-fixed mice.
