German - Japanese Collaborations
With the transnational funding initiative "German - Japanese Collaborations in Computational Neuroscience", the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) support German-Japanese collaborative projects in Computational Neuroscience.
The new funding measure has the objective to establish transnational research projects and aims at deepening already existing collaborations between researchers of these two countries and raise them to a new level.
The following projects were granted within the framework of the German - Japanese Collaborations in Computational Neurocience:
First funding round, starting 2012:
- Berlin - Kyoto /Nara: "Robust, adaptiv BCIs for nonstationary environments" (funded by BMBF and JST)
- Jülich - Osaka / Kyoto: "Impact of top-down influence on visual processing during free viewing: multi-scale analysis of multi-area massively parallel recording of the visual pathway" (funded by BMBF and JST)
- Munich - Fukuoka / Kobe: "Neural basis of auditory processing in the honeybee - The role of neuron morphology and development" (funded by BMBF and JST)
- Chemnitz / Berlin - Okazaki: "The function and role of Basal Ganglia pathways: From single to multiple loops" (funded by DFG and JST)
- Göttingen / Kiel - Nishinomiya / Tachikawa: "Multidisciplinary reconstruction of the pan-network physiome generating spontaneous synchronized neural activity in the mammalian brain" (funded by DFG and JST)
- Göttingen / Bielefeld / Bochum - Kyoto: "Haptic Learning" (funded by DFG and JST)
Second funding round, starting 2013:
- Jülich - Tokyo / Okazaki: "Neuronal network mechanisms of reinforcement learning" (funded by BMBF and JST)
- Munich - Kobe: "Impedance behavior of the human arm during energy exchange: from human experiments over models to robotics" (funded by BMBF and JST)
