Details are to follow, but we and our many colleagues in the Hoerhanse Lübeck [hanseatic hearing] are very pleased to have secured substantial funds to kick-start our communication and cross-fertilization platform for hearing research, training, and treatment here in Lübeck. The project will be hosted at our partner, Hanse Innovation Campus (HIC) Lübeck. HIC will also be hiring soon for this poject. Stay tuned for all the details!
Im Februar hatte ich die Ehre, für die Kind Hörstiftung auf deren 2019er Symposium in Berlin unsere Arbeiten zur Vorhersage des Hörerfolgs exemplarisch anhand einiger unserer Studien allgemeinverständlich zu beleuchten. Ein 25-minütiges Video dieses Vortrags ist jetzt online.
(In February, I had the honour of presenting some of our recent work on predicting individuals’ listening success at the symposium of the Kind Hearing Foundation. A video in German is now available.)

After three very interesting and instructive years as a handling editor for Neuroimage, I have just accepted an invitation to join my favourite journal, the classic Journal of Neuroscience, as what they call “Reviewing editor” (i.e., handling or action editor). Looking forward to some exciting science on our desks there!
The scientific publishing field is changing fast, and I am particularly happy for the opportunity to help foster a successful, society-run journal like The Journal of Neuroscience in the three upcoming years.
During the upcoming meeting of “Psychology and the Brain 2018”, PhD student Leo Waschke will be hosting a symposium on states and traits of neural activity and their functional relevance for perception and ageing. Together with Linda Geerligs (Donders Institute, NL), Marieke Schölvinck (ESI, Frankfurt) and Niels Kloosterman (MPIB, Berlin) he will be addressing fluctuations in brain activity on a host of timescales from milliseconds to minutes. We are looking forward to meeting you in Giessen.
Come and see our very first auditory cognition newsletter. From now on we want to present impressions of our latest work and results twice a year. In the interview section you also have the chance to learn more about our members.
Please note: As the newsletter also reaches our participants it is written in german.
Save your slot at the SNAP2017 workshop in Lübeck (December 8–9). Registration is available at snap.obleserlab.com and will end soon! A first line-up is already live. Submission deadline for the Posters will be July 31st, acceptance notifications will be sent out in August 2017.
The workshop will bring together, for two days of science, about 12 international speakers on neuroscience, psychophysics and engineering perspectives on processing degraded sound and speech.
Wow: Massive congratulations to Lea Schmitt, who just has been awarded the Colin Cherry Award 2017 at the 9th Speech in Noise (SPIN) workshop in Oldenburg. Germany. The Colin Cherry award honours the best poster (audience award) and gets you a cocktail shaker set.
Lea’s work, which formed her MSc thesis, is both provocative and imaginative: Lea went after the ancient truism that closing your eyes helps you in difficult listening situations. Turns out it’s not that simple, but Lea established a very neat link to individual differences in alpha-power dynamics. Watch this space for a new paper to come (Schmitt, Obleser, & Wöstmann, forthcoming).
Lea is not only the first student to receive her MSc in the new Obleser lab in Lübeck, but (maybe not so) incidentally, she was mainly supervised by a former Colin Cherry Award winner himself, Obleserlab’s own Malte Wöstmann. Congratulations to both!
