A game of ping pong for the eyes

Munich researchers have unraveled the basis of the so-called optokinetic reflex: there are certain brain cells encoding both the speed of the landscape and the eye movement (June 2014).

Listen! Nerve cells flexibly adapt to acoustic signals

Depending on the input signal, neurons generate action potentials either near or far away from the cell body, as researcher from Munich predict (April 2014).
