Tatjana Tchumatchenko receives Heinz Maier-Leibnitz-Prize 2016

The most prestigious prize for young scientists in Germany is awarded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Each laureate receives 20.000 Euro, which is awarded on May 18 in Berlin (March 2016).

Tatjana Tchumatchenko is head of the "Theory of neural dynamics group" at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research. She is a theoretician with strong links to experimentalists and uses mathematical models to investigate the dynamics and information processing of neural systems, ranging from individual neurons to smaller networks. She did her PhD studies under the supervision of Fred Wolf (BCCN and BFNT Göttingen, BFNL visual learning, BCOL action potential encoding, Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization).
