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

Best Paper Award Winner: Interdisciplinarity at its best

Biologist Sreedhar Kumar and computer scientist Jan Wülfing want to learn to control biological neural networks through reinforcement learning. Their joint efforts have now been awarded the prize of Best Student Paper at the European Symposium on Artificial Neural Networks, Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning (ESANN).


Summa cum laude for Renato Duarte

The Bernstein Center Freiburg would like to congratulate Renato Duarte on his doctorate. He defended his thesis on "State-dependent processing in spiking neural networks" with excellence.




A new approach to infer effective connectivity from fMRI signal

An interdisciplinary research team from the Bernstein Center Freiburg and the University Medical Center Freiburg have devised a new approach to infer networks from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) signals. The new procedures can identify both the direction and the sign of effective interactions in large networks with high fidelity and reliability.
