Lynn Schmittwilken

Doctoral researcher

Lynn Schmittwilken obtained her B.Sc in Psychology and her M.Sc. Neurosciences at Bremen University with a main focus on mammal brain and mammal behavior with a main interest in the human brain. She received insights into the complexity and functionality of the central nervous system through her specialization in visual perception, which she researched using methods such as electrophysiology, psychophysics as well as computational modeling.
As a SCIoI doctoral student, Lynn continues to study visual processing in humans. She is particularly interested in how humans synthesize the three-dimensional nature of our surrounds, and how this information could be used to improve computer vision models.
