Kremkow et al. 2014 PNAS

In the study “Kremkow et al. Neuronal nonlinearity explains greater visual spatial resolution for darks than lights. PNAS 2014″ we demonstrate fundamental differences in the way lights and darks are processed in the visual system and we show that these differences can explain a phenomenon first described by Galileo almost 400 years ago that was still puzzling astronomers today. This article received worldwide press coverage from more than 30 news outlets, including: Scientific American National GeographicSPIEGEL ONLINETIME MagazineEl MundoLe Scienze.

Kremkow et al. 2010b Journal of Neuroscience

The study “Kremkow et al. Gating of Signal Propagation in Spiking Neural Networks by Balanced and Correlated Excitation and Inhibition. Journal of Neuroscience 2010” we show that the temporal delay between excitation and inhibition, shown in red and blue in the traffic light, can gate signal propagation in neuronal circuits. The article received international press coverage, including the Greek weekly newspaper To Vima (html, pdf). We also wrote a preview about this article in BioSpektrum (pdf). A figure of this paper was used in the review Kumar et al. 2010 Nature Review Neuroscience 11(9) 615- 627.
