John-Dylan Haynes accepts Bernstein Professorship in Berlin

How the world is consciously perceived. What happens in our brain, when we consciously perceive something or when we plan an action? How can we control attention? How can people's thoughts be deduced from their brain activity? Finding answers to those questions is the research goal of John-Dylan Haynes, who has now accepted the chair of the professorship "Theory and Analysis of Large-Scale Brain Signals" (November 2006).

Course on Computational Neuroscience for the fourth time in Göttingen

An international workshop on the topic of "Computational Neuroscience" from 26 to 30 September attracts young scientists from all over Europe and outside of Europe to Göttingen. Four high-ranking scientists from Germany and the US will introduce the participants to the latest developments in the field of computational neuroscience. The participants of the course come from experimental and theoretical institutes in roughly equal proportions; this mix will make for synergic effects and, in any case, lively debates in the course of common learning (September 2006).
