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

The space-time fabric of brain networks | From space to space-time in the brain


Scientists at the Bernstein Center Freiburg (BCF) and KTH Stockholm found simple rules that enable networks in the brain to generate sequential spiking activity, forming the basis of behavior. Their findings have now been published in PLoS Computational Biology.

Balance of inputs to the striatum shifted towards the direct-pathway neurons in vivo, but not in Parkinson’s disease

Most symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are caused by a disbalance in the direct and indirect pathways of the basal ganglia. Despite the importance of this two pathways, the properties of their inputs are still poorly understood. Researchers from Stockholm and the Bernstein Center Freiburg found evidence that neurons in the direct-pathway receive overall more input than those in the indirect-pathway. Their findings have now been published in the Journal of Neurophysiology.

Growing and moving: How interactions between neuronal migration and outgrowth shape network architecture

Based on in vitro studies and computational modeling, neuroscientists Dr. Samora Okujeni and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Egert from the Bernstein Center Freiburg have made an important contribution to the understanding of brain networks and their development: they show how neuronal outgrowth and migration interact in shaping network architecture and the degree of modularity in mature networks. Their findings have now been published in eLife.
