From pandemics to climate change, study of collective behavior must become ‘crisis discipline,’ researchers argue
Our ability to confront global crises depends on how we interact and share information.
The Einstein Foundation will be supporting neurobiologist Susanne Schreiber as an Einstein Professor at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. With the help of additional funding from the Einstein Foundation, the university was able to counter an offer from another university, thus ensuring that the expert in theoretical neurophysiology will remain in Berlin.
Researchers at the University Medical Center Göttingen have studied how nerve cells in the eye react to different color combinations. They found special cells in the eyes of mice that respond particularly well to contrasts between green and ultraviolet light. This could enable the animals to see the horizon clearly and use it for orientation. The scientific paper was published in "Nature Communications".
Imaging techniques enable decisive step toward development of novel hearing prostheses
Researchers regard the overall distribution of receptors in the brain – the receptome – as a new approach for computer models that reproduce the function of the brain, and for diagnostics and therapy of mental disorders.
