Tatjana Tchumatchenko compares modern-day brain research to astronomy at Einstein’s times. Her chief goal is to crack the neural code.
In 2015, Marion Silies went from Stanford to Göttingen on an Emmy Noether scholarship. The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Göttingen was a big pull factor for her decision. Today, she is professor for neurobiology at the University of Mainz.
A Bernstein Sloan-Swartz scholarship brought Julijana Gjorgjieva from the USA to Germany in 2015. Today, she is group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and actively committed to the training of the "next generation in computational neuroscience".
Anna Levina, member of the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Tübingen, received the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award 2017, one of the most prestigious and most highly endowed research awards in Germany.
Sonja Grün is co-initiator of the Advanced Neural Data Analysis Course ANDA. In this interview she grants a look behind the scenes of the course.
