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

Portraits of Communication in Neuronal Networks

The brain is organized as a network of highly specialized networks of spiking neurons. For this to work, groups of neurons in different networks need to be able to communicate with each other. But under which conditions can such communication take place? Researchers from the Bernstein Center Freiburg, and colleagues from Spain and Sweden, are proposing a new framework that combines three prominent explanatory models. Their conclusions have now been published in Nature Reviews Neuroscience.
