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

Non-invasive assessment of superficial and deep layer circuits in human motor cortex

An international collaboration of research teams from the Department of Sport Science Freiburg, the Bernstein Center Freiburg and the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University developed a technique to investigate layer-specific activity modulations in the human motor cortex. The novel approach has now been published in The Journal of Physiology.

Press Coverage

Mental Leaps  How words and sentences become stories

This was the topic of our Science Jam No. 13 at the Bernstein Werkstatt. Read an article about the evening in the "Badische Zeitung" (online in German).


The theorist with a passion for the practical

Perfect timing for Michael Kordovan – after his excellent doctorate,
the young scientist is now taking the step which he had originally planned to take after his diploma studies. He has just signed his work contract with a company for industrial image processing.


Outstanding achievement by Ali Mahmoodi

The Bernstein Center Freiburg would like to congratulate Ali Mahmoodi on his distinguished doctorate on “Behavioural and Neural Basis of Social Influence”.
