How AI can help uncover the way memory works

A symphony of electrical signals and a dynamic tangle of connections between brain cells help us to make new memories. Using AI-powered models of groups of neurons, FMI researchers are working towards unlocking how the brain orchestrates this dance. Their latest study has achieved a major advance in accurately simulating the changes in the connections between neurons that sense the external environment, opening the door to a greater understanding of how countless brain cells transform sensations into perceptions and thoughts. Eventually, AI-powered tools may help to illuminate some of the workings of real brains.

Fruit fly serenade: Princeton neuroscientists decode the tiny creatures’ mating song

Love songs are at least as popular in the animal kingdom as on the radio. The importance of musically serenading your true love has driven plotlines from Twelfth Night to The Trumpet of the Swan to Happy Feet.

Distributed workload in the fly brain

Recognizing motion requires an enormous amount of computing power from the brain. A new study from Alexander Borst's department at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Intelligence shows how the fly brain masters this task: By performing a neuronal computation on three network levels, it distributes the workload over several steps. This is the first time that researchers have deciphered a neuronal network in which one cell type performs the same computation at all network levels. This approach helps fruit flies to reliably recognize different motion patterns – the prerequisite for staying on track.

Public evening lecture: Evolutionary hanging game or leap innovation – News from the first brains

How did the first nerve cells and brains develop? And what does this question have to do with comb jellies (Ctenophore)? All interested parties are cordially invited to the public evening lecture on September 27 at 8 pm, where Prof. Dr. Fred Wolf from the University of Göttingen and the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization will take the audience on a journey to the origins of brains and into the depths of the oceans. The lecture is part of the Bernstein Conference 2023, which is organized by the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience, the Humboldt University of Berlin and the Charité.

The Bernstein Conference attracts brain scientists from all over the world to Berlin

From September 26-29, international neuroscientists will meet in the facilities of the Humboldt University of Berlin and Charité to discuss the latest findings in Computational Neuroscience. This marks the end of an era, as the Bernstein Conference will move to Frankfurt am Main for the following years after several years in Berlin.
