Together with this opening symposium our Research Training Group GRK 1589 will organize the workshop "From Neurons to Behavior - Computing across scales".
On June 24, 2017, from 5 to 11 p.m., scientists of the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin (and the Interdisciplinary Center Computational Neuroscience) present their research to the general public in terms of presentations, a science slams (in English), 3 Bernstein TV movies in German and English, and an information booth.
During the BRAIN AWARENESS WEEK from March 13 to March 17, 2017 the BCCN Berlin organizes together with the Berlin School of Mind and Brain and several cooperation partners a number of events in Berlin.
The next Winter School "Ethics and Neuroscience" will take place from Feb 20-24, 2017 and is organised by the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain.
A new study from the Brecht lab has found how “ticklishness” is represented in the rat brain. The study has been published on 11th November 2016 in Science.
A lion is chasing a zebra across the African savanna. For both animals, choosing the right movement at the right time is a matter of life and death. Accordingly, a large part of the mammalian brain is devoted to the control of movement: The motor cortex.
The BCCN Berlin participates in the Berlin Science week by organizing an event with two talks on artificial intelligence.
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.
