Graduate Programs

We aim at fostering a new generation of scientists who have been trained in both mathematical / computational skills and neuroscientific methodologies. Therefore, the Bernstein Center Berlin has set up two international, interdisciplinary graduate programs:

→ Master Program
→ Doctoral Program

About

The Bernstein Center Berlin was founded in 2004 and addresses one of the most challenging questions in computational and cognitive neuroscience:

“How is it possible that we can react to sensory stimuli with millisecond precision if intermediate processing elements – on the level of single synapses, single neurons, small networks and even large neural systems – vary significantly in their response to the same repeated stimulus?”
