Welcome

The Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience connects experimental and theoretical scientists. It comprises more than 200 research groups and 450 individual scientists from all over the world who combine experimental neuroscientific approaches with theoretical models and computer simulations.

The Bernstein Network was launched in 2004 through a major funding initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) which aimed at advancing the transfer of theoretical knowledge to clinical and technical applications. The network is named after the German physiologist and biophysicist Julius Bernstein (1839-1917).

Penghao Qian from China receives the Brains for Brains Award 2024

With the Brains for Brains Award, the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience honors young scientists who pursue a career in computational neuroscience and whose publication portfolio reveals outstanding merit at a very early stage of their careers. This year’s Brains for Brains Award, endowed with € 2000, goes to Penghao Qian from China. It enables Qian to visit the Bernstein Conference and exclusive laboratories in the field of computational neuroscience in Germany. The award will be presented at the Bernstein Conference on October 2, 2024, in Frankfurt am Main.

Update of the Julich-Brain Atlas – new data for brain models

Release 3.1 of the Julich Brain Atlas has been published and can be freely downloaded through the EBRAINS research infrastructure. The updated brain atlas now gives online access to 52 new probability maps of cortical and subcortical structures in a three-dimensional reference space. Programming interfaces for the computational neurosciences simplify the integration of the data into brain models.

From dawdling to doing: the science of procrastination

Procrastination, the deliberate but detrimental deferring of tasks, has many forms. Sahiti Chebolu of the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics uses a precise mathematical framework to understand its different patterns and their underlying reasons. Her insights could help tailor individual strategies to tackle the issue.

African-German Scientific Exchange in the Field of Neurosciences

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) invites interested researchers from all African countries and Germany to engage in a scientific exchange in the field of neurosciences.

This initiative covers all research questions that are primarily concerned with neurosciences. Subject areas include basic, applied and clinical topics. Research questions concerning neglected tropical infectious diseases in humans and animals as well as their social and behavioural aspects are excluded from the initiative and will not be considered to be within the scope of the call.

The aim of the initiative is for participating researchers to identify joint interests in the area of neurosciences and initiate new collaborative ventures.

Förderung von Projekten in der Forschungs- und Innovationszusammenarbeit mit den Ländern der Östlichen Partnerschaft und Zentralasiens

Ziel des Förderaufrufs ist es, die Forschungspartner:innen aus den Ländern der Östlichen Partnerschaft über gemeinsame Forschungs- und Innovationsprojekte in den europäischen Forschungsraum (ERA) besser einzubinden. Damit soll ein Beitrag dazu geleistet werden, einen gemeinsamen Wissens- und Innovationsraum zwischen der EU und den offiziellen und potenziellen Beitrittskandidat:innen sowie weiteren Ländern der Östlichen Partnerschaft zu schaffen. Dieses Ziel kann durch die Vernetzung und Kooperation mit erfahrenen und innovationsstarken Partnereinrichtungen unterstützt werden.
