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

Wege zur Erforschung des Gehirns

Two first prize winners of the Bernstein-CorTec Award

Prof. Kerstin Krieglstein, Rector of the University of Freiburg, presents the first edition of the newly established Bernstein-CorTec Prize for Computational Neuroscience and Neurotechnology to two young researchers, Júlia Gallinaro and Katharina Heining, in the afternoon of November 4, for Corona-reasons in virtual format.
Outstanding performance in the field of hearing research
Dr. Nicole Roßkothen-Kuhl, Head of the Neurobiological Research Laboratory at the ENT Clinic, University Medical Center Freiburg and member of the Bernstein Center Freiburg, was awarded with the Meyer-zum-Gottesberge Prize 2020.

Absage Ringvorlesung Wintersemester 2020/2021

Die Ringvorlesung "Wege zur Erforschung des Gehirns" kann im Wintersemester 2020/21 aufgrund der Corona-Pandemie leider nicht stattfinden. Wir bemühen uns, die Ringvorlesung im Wintersemester 2021/22 wieder wie üblich stattfinden zu lassen.

Loop, Resonate, and Accelerate!

Neuroscientists demonstrate how to improve communication between different regions of the brain. They have now presented their results in the journal PLoS Computational Biology.
