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

Science Days 2018 ►

As part of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience, the Bernstein Center Freiburg has once again presented itself at the Science Days 2018 at Europa-Park Rust. For the first time, the Bernstein Centers for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Munich and Göttingen has also taken part.


Ways to Explore the Brain

The Bernstein Center cordially invites you to our next round of the lecture series 'Ways to explore the brain' taking place in the winter semester 2018/2019. The series is aimed at a broad audience and will begin on Monday, 22rd October.


Synthetic brain rhythms

Scientists from the Bernstein Center Freiburg and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology used an innovative optogenetic stimulation paradigm to evoke synthetic brain rhythms in vivo with a novel fiber probe customized for this stimulation. The novel stimulation technique is a promising research tool to explore or to interfere with slow brain rhythms.


Electrical fingerprinting of nerve cells

Together with colleagues from Norway, researchers from the Bernstein Center Freiburg have devised a new method to extract information from extracellular action potential recordings performed with state-of-the-art multi-electrode arrays. The new method can automatically spot cells in 3D space, and based on their electrical fingerprint it can even identify neuronal subtypes. These features will help to map neural circuits more accurately and more reliably in the future.
