How does a rat manage to catch its prey in the dark? What happens in our brain when we formulate a sentence? Can monkeys count and why is it important that we know this? In what kind of neurological structures does anxiety manifest itself and how can it be controlled? What happens in the brain during an epileptic seizure and what does this imply for medical therapies? And how do philosophers approach brain research? These are just a few of the many fascinating questions that will be addressed by local and invited scientists from various disciplines in a clear and understandable way.

Professor Michael Brecht from Berlin's Humboldt University will open the lecture series on Monday, 23rd October. He will talk about the exciting interplay between body contact, tickles and the brain.

The lecture series is aimed at a broad audience with a general interest in current brain research. It will be held in German. After a 40-minute lecture there will be the opportunity for discussion. Entrance is free of charge.

When?        Mondays at 7:00 p.m., beginning on Monday, 23rd October
