This year's Bernstein Conference on Computational Neuroscience will take place at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin from September 21-23. This conference is the Bernstein Network's central forum that has developed over time into the largest annual Computational Neuroscience conference in Europe, attracting an international audience from across the world. It is organized by members of the Bernstein Network at annually changing locations and offers a broad overview over the topics of Computational Neuroscience and Neurotechnology.
Satellite workshops and a PhD symposium will accompany the single track main conference.
Humans continue to learn throughout their lives. The underlying process, which is referred to as synaptic plasticity, is the result of activity-dependent modifications of the connections between different nerve cells. Researchers from Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin have identified a protein that appears to play a central role in mediating this synaptic plasticity. Results from this study have now been published in the journal eLife*.
