BrainDisC PhD Conference 2016:
“State of the Brain: From Cellular Properties to Neural Networks”


Annually, the PhD students of BrainDisC, the in-house PhD program of the Bernstein Center Freiburg (BCF), organize a scientific event where selected experts in neuroscience present their work and get acquainted with the research performed at the BCF, in an environment favorable to the exchange of ideas.

The invited scientists are selected not only on the basis of the relevance of their work to the field of neuroscience in general, and to students’ own research in particular, but also having in mind a balanced selection of experimentalists and theoreticians.
