Bernstein Student Workshop Series

The Bernstein Student Workshop Series is an initiative of the student members of the Bernstein Network. It provides a unique opportunity to enhance the technical exchange on a peer-to-peer basis. The series is motivated by the idea of bridging the gap between theoretical and experimental neuroscience by bringing together methodological expertise in the network.

Starting from October 2022, the workshop series takes place every second Thursday from 16:00 – 18:00 CEST (online). Unlike conventional workshops, a talented junior scientist will first give a tutorial about a specific theoretical or experimental technique, and then give a talk about their own research to demonstrate how the technique helps to address neuroscience questions.

The workshop series is designed to cover a wide range of theoretical and experimental techniques and elucidate how different techniques can be applied to answer different types of neuroscience questions. Combining the technical tutorial and the research talk, the workshop series aims to promote knowledge sharing in the community and enhance in-depth discussions among students from diverse backgrounds.
