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

The focus is on Europe at the 2019 Stallwächterparty



Inform, explain, answer questions – this was the mission of Stefan Rotter, Managing Director of the Bernstein Center Freiburg, who travelled to Berlin for the 56th Baden-Württemberg Stallwächterparty. And he used the opportunity to plead the case for cross-border, fundamental research to Theresia Bauer, Research Minister of Baden-Württemberg.

Simulating the effect of transcranial brain stimulation


The long-lasting aftereffects of non-invasive transcranial direct current stimulation promise an alleviation of severe symptoms of diseases like depressive disorder or chronic pain. In a new modeling study, researchers from the Bernstein Center Freiburg suggest that the aftereffects observed in experiments may be a consequence of homeostatic network growth. Their findings have now been published in Network Neuroscience.

A congenital additional finger brings motor advantages


Polydactyly is the extraordinary condition of someone being born with more than five fingers or toes. In a case study published in Nature Communications, researchers from Freiburg, London and Lausanne have for the first time examined the motor skills and sensorimotor brain areas in people with polydactyly. The results show that an extra finger can significantly extend the manipulation abilities and skill.

Inhomogeneities in network structure govern spontaneous activity


Networks of biological neurons can be spontaneously active. Researchers from the Bernstein Center Freiburg investigated the origin of spontaneous activity generation in networks of cultured cortical neurons. They found that spontaneous activity mainly originates in regions where such networks are inhomogeneous. Their findings have now been published in Frontiers in Neuroscience.
