Graduate Programs

With the 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


BCCN alumni came from all over the world to be part of the first alumni workshop. With scientific talks, business talks, poster session and a moderated discussion about career inside outside university, the divers program was perfectly matched to the needs of our alumni.


With a two day workshop the BCCN Berlin started its cooperation with the University of Oxford. 15 PhD students from each side participated in an interactive workshop with talks, tutorials, speed dating, poster session and a lot of fun.



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?”
