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



Neuroscience & Neurotechnology in Freiburg | First Annual Retreat   190816-Heining-Start.jpg   1907-merkt-start


Profile Field Neuroscience & Neurotechnology | 1st Annual Retreat | Friday, October 11, 2019

The Profile Field Neuroscience & Neurotechnology cordially invites you to the 1st Annual Retreat. It provides an opportunity for everyone in the Freiburg Neuroscience & Neurotechnology community to meet and discuss their work in order to increase awareness of ongoing research and approaches/technologies, to generate novel ideas, and to foster new interactions and collaborations.

Bursts with high and low load of epileptiform spikes show context-dependent correlations in epileptic mice

Epileptic activity in the brain consists of synchronized activity of neurons in a region of the brain that jointly generate spikes of electrical activity. It is an open question whether bursts of a few of such spikes signal an increasing probability of severe events with more spikes – or if they instead reflect neuronal processes that prevents this. A research team from the Bernstein Center Freiburg analyzed these patterns in detail in a mouse model for a specific type of epilepsy. Their work has now been published in eNeuro.



Disentangling the complex signal flow in layered networks of neocortex

Networks in the brain often have a complex structure, comprising multiple layers or subpopulations of nerve cells. Researchers from Bernstein Center Freiburg are now proposing a novel theoretical framework to disentangle aspects of the complex signal flow within these networks. The work has now been published in PLOS Computational Biology.
