Göttingen researchers explain how the eye recognizes motion: Special nerve cells in the eye indicate a shift in the line of sight. Groups of these cells contribute to the recognition of small eye movements and help to keep the viewing direction stable so that the image of the environment becomes clear.
Synapse maturation and the timing of critical periods during brain development is governed by the balance of two signaling proteins with opposing functions.
Research team at the University of Göttingen investigates neuronal plasticity in rodents
The loss of the flexibility to adapt to new tasks leads to perseverative errors and indicates that a person rigorously clings to past objectives. A research team from the Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) investigated the underlying deficits of information processing and their neural foundations.
Researchers at the Bernstein Center Freiburg and colleagues are proposing a new model to explain how neural networks in different brain areas communicate with each other
UMG Collaborative Research Center receives funding for another four years
Tübingen researchers trace the formation of memories in the cerebral neocortex
Listen and experience what your brain can do - this was was the motto of the Bernstein Network at the Science Days at Europa Park in Rust.
In "BrainPlay", the interdisciplinary project team, consisting of Michael Brecht, Daphne Bavelier, Robert Gütig and Dietmar Schmitz, is exploring the question about what goes on in the brain during play.
