Sensory perception is modulated in a top-down fashion by higher brain regions to regulate the strength of its own input resulting in the adaptation of behavioral responses. In olfactory perception, the horizontal diagonal band of broca (HDB), embedded in the basal forebrain modulates olfactory information processing by recruiting olfactory bulb (OB...

In Alzheimer’s disease (AD), hippocampus-dependent memories underlie an extensive decline. The neuronal ensemble encoding a memory, termed engram, is partially recapitulated during memory recall. Artificial activation of an engram can restore memory in a mouse model of early AD, but its fate and the factors that render the engram nonfunctional are...

I've published an article in the december 2017 issue of #esut (Europäische Sicherheit und Technik) about active space debris removal.

Article
We study the morphology of Ganymede's FUV aurora by analyzing spectral images obtained over the past two decades by the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph on board the Hubble Space Telescope. The observations cover the eastern and western elongation as well as various magnetic latitudes of Ganymede within the Jovian plasma sheet. We find both asy...
Thesis
The far ultraviolet (FUV) aurora on Jupiter’s largest moon, Ganymede, is characterized by two distinct ovals in the northern and southern hemisphere, which have been investigated by several campaigns of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in the past two decades (e.g., Hall et al. (1998), Feldman et al. (2000) and McGrath et al. (2013)). The aurora is...
Presentation
Abstract We analyze spectrally and spatially resolved images of Ganymede’s FUV-auroral ovals obtained during the past two decades by Hubble’s Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (HST/STIS). We find both, spatial inhomogeneities of the brightness- distribution on the observed disk as well as temporal variation as a function of Ganymede’s position r...
Article
We present a new approach to search for a subsurface ocean within Ganymede through observations and modeling of the dynamics of its auroral ovals. The locations of the auroral ovals oscillate due to Jupiter's time-varying magnetospheric field seen in the rest frame of Ganymede. If an electrically conductive ocean is present, the external time-varyi...

Abstract We investigate properties of Ganymede’s FUV auroral ovals using spectral images acquired during two visits in 2010 and 2011 with Hubble’s Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (HST/STIS campaign 12244) when Ganymede was at eastern elongation. We analyze the variability of the structure and brightness of the auroral ovals as a function of ma...
Poster
We analyze the variability of Ganymede’s FUV auroral ovals using spectral images acquired during two visits in 2010 and 2011 with Hubble’s Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (HST/STIS) when Ganymede was at eastern elongation. The observed electron-impact-excited auroral emissions from Ganymede’s O2 atmosphere are thought to be driven by electron...
Presentation
Abstract Jupiter’s satellites Io, Europa, and Ganymede exhibit distinct auroral emission patterns, which are immensely diagnostic for a variety of properties. The auroral emission can be used to probe the satellites’ atmospheres and surfaces, the plasma interactions with Jupiter’s magnetosphere and even provide a means to search for sub-surface oce...
Presentation
Ganymede possesses a complex magnetic field environment composed of Jupiter’s time-variable magnetospheric field, Ganymede’s internal dynamo field, time-variable plasma magnetic fields due to Ganymede’s interaction with Jupiter’s magnetosphere, and contributions due to induction in a possible subsurface saline ocean. Constraints on Ganymede’s magne...
