What are neuronal network mechanisms and theoretical foundations of brain function? How can insights from basic research into brain function contribute to our understanding of brain dysfunction? And how can we apply this knowledge for developing better diagnostics and new therapies for brain disease and injury? These are some of the questions our scientists are seeking to answer. ► Mission Statement

Epilepsy: Changing the beat?

Rhythmic network activity is considered to be important for normal brain function. A recent study finds that the theta-rhythm slows down in epileptic mice - irrespective of the degree of restructuring in the hippocampus. This points towards wide-ranging changes of a system that is thought to coordinate activity across distant brain regions.

Alternative View on Neuronal Network Remodeling

Scientists from the Bernstein Center Freiburg demonstrated that Hebbian association in neuronal networks can also emerge from homeostatic plasticity, which is normally thought to exclusively stabilize neuronal activity.


New Neuroscience Landing Page online

Good news for all those who would like to get a quick overview of the neuroscientific research sector in Freiburg. The Bernstein Center Freiburg has created a "Landing Page" to be found under www.neuro.uni-freiburg.de.
