Jan Clemens

Auditory Neuroscience

Jan Clemens appointed

Dr Jan Clemens has been appointed Professor of Auditory Neuroscience at the Department of Neuroscience. Before joining the University of Oldenburg he headed a research group at the European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen (ENI).

Clemens studied biology and theoretical biology at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and did his PhD on sensory computation in neural systems at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin. From 2012 to 2017 he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University in New Jersey (USA), after which he returned to Germany in 2017 and became a group leader at the ENI. Clemens researches how the brain enables successful communication and how it processes acoustic information from our environment and communication partners so that we say the right thing at the right moment. He conducts experiments with insects, which are commonly used as a model for human hearing, and develops innovative machine-learning methods to explore the neural foundations of communication behaviour.
