Junior Professorship Programme supports research on neuronal basis of movements

Junior Professorship Programme supports research on neuronal basis of movements

The activity of neurons is the basis for movement patterns in animals and humans alike. Up to now, it is largely unknown how the structure and activity of a neuronal network shapes the composition of complex movements. Abigail Morrison, Junior Professor at the Faculty of Biology and the Bernstein Center at the University of Freiburg, is trying to find an answer to this question. The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science now awarded her research with a grant of 150,000 €.

European Union awards Erasmus Mundus grant for Joint Doctorate Programme to the Bernstein Center Freiburg

The Bernstein Center Freiburg will receive funding from the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate Programme of the European Union to support its efforts in educating PhD students in the interdisciplinary field of neuroinformatics. The so-called EuroSPIN (European Study Programme in Neuroinformatics) will be carried out in collaboration with Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan in Stockholm, Sweden, the University of Edinburgh, UK, and the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, in Bangalore, India. The programme will start in 2010.
