European Neuroscience Labs offering training

  • The Network of European Neuroscience Schools - NENS - lists the names of European neuroscience labs offering training
  • The "Neurowissenschaftliche Gesellschaft" offers training courses for students and doctoral students in several courses over the year.

Mailing lists and forums

  • BCCN Berlin mailing lists (inform about talks, events, jobs - for subscription, please contact BCCN Berlin)
  • World Wide Neuro mailing list informs about all neuroscience-related talks in the World!
  • Neurocolloquium Berlin mailing list (informs about talks and events in Berlin)
  • Berlin School of Mind and Brain mailing list (informs about talks, events, jobs)
  • Machine Learning News mailing list
  • Robotics Wordwide mailing list
  • Color and Vision Network mailing list
  • International Multisensory Research Forum (IMRF) mailing list
  • Connectionists is a moderated mailing list for discussion of technical issues relating to neural computation, and dissemination of professional announcements such as calls for papers, book announcements, and electronic preprints. For subscribing to the list please follow this link.
  • The computational neuroscience email list at is a moderated list and is intended to address the broad range of research approaches and issues involved in the general field of computational neuroscience and neuroinformatics. It is intended to allow interactions between experimental and theoretical neurobiologists along with computer scientists, bioinformaticians, engineers, cognitive scientists, physicists, and mathematicians interested in understanding how biological neural systems work. For subscribing to the list please follow this link.
  • The Neuroscience Forum was established by a group of neuroscience students in order to facilitate and encourage communication between neuroscience students around the world.
    Since neuroscience is rapidly developing into a major field of study, students are nowadays facing a broader spectrum of education options emerging over the past years. Together with this vast growth, the interdisciplinary character of neuroscience often results in programs that focus on different aspects of the field. Thus, the initiators have created this platform to help students acquire a more holistic understanding of neuroscience but also as a source of inspiration for their future research.
    Their main objective is to shape a framework in which neuroscience students can represent their interests, acting as a unit.
