Bonn Brain 3 Conference will take place from March 24-26, 2020

The 6th International Bonn Brain 3 Conference will take place from March 24-26, 2020. We have an excellent group of international speakers joining us this year.   

The website for registration and abstract submission is  open! Please register early - note that there is an early-bird registration discount. If you plan to submit an abstract, you DO NOT need to have your abstract completed to register. Postdocs and students - please consider applying for giving a short talk in our young investigator session.  

Bonn Brain 3 will continue the tradition of featuring a neuroscience art competition. And do not miss the party on the last evening! 



Welcome to our new students!

In October 2019 16 MSc Neurosciences students from all over the world started their MSc's studies in Bonn.

A warm welcome to all of them and the best wishes for an interesting and inspiring time in Bonn!

Mystery of the Brain 2019

September 16 – 19, 2019, Neue Aula, Tübingen

The Mystery of the Brain has inspired many bright minds over the past century. A product of natural evolution, the brain remains unbeatable by any man-made machine. The structural complexity and the dynamics of neural network self-organization require multimodal and multidisciplinary approaches providing information at all possible spatiotemporal scales. Sophisticated mathematical tools are a “must” in the path of processing and understanding such multidimensional data, but are currently utterly insufficient in providing true “brain-analogs” in a formal language, or models for driving robots!  Data acquisition remains the only promising path, and not surprisingly we have been witnessing massive and impressive developments of experimental tools permitting a direct access to the brain’s mass. This symposium aims to present, discuss and enthusiastically promote multimodal approaches for tackling the Brain-Mysteries.



Want to to interact and share your latest ideas in AI, neuroimaging and computational neuroscience with plenty of opportunities for presenting your posters and getting a hands-on experience with the latest tools, and for networking during the social events? Visit the Neuroinformatics 2019 in Warsaw!



In March 2018 two students of our Master Neurosciences program passed a highly competitive international selection process and qualified themselves as members of the International Max Planck Research School for Brain and Behavior (IMPRS). This world-class Ph.D. training and research school unites Universities and Max Planck Institutions in Bonn und Florida.

Our two graduates Petra Mocellin and André Haubrich were ranked among the top three of more than 200 applicants. Great job!



Great News!

In March 2017 two students of our Master Neurosciences program passed a highly competitive international selection process and qualified themselves as members of the International Max Planck Research School for Brain and Behavior (IMPRS). This world-class Ph.D. training and research school unites Universities and Max Planck Institutions in Bonn und Florida.

Our two students were ranked among the top three of more than 160 applicants, congratulations!
