NEW! Five PhD fellowships!

Cologne Summer School and practical course on Neural circuit analysis 2015 organized by the RTG1960


Past summer school:

Cologne Summer School and practical course on Neural circuit analysis 2014







The understanding of nervous system activity in its physiological and pathophysiological conditions is a fundamental goal of the neurosciences. In Cologne neuroscientists examine nervous system function in health and disease across the molecular, cellular and network level. Here we announce a summer school with lectures and hands on experiments in neural circuit analysis.

The summer school will take place on June 22 - 29, 2014 in the biological department and medical faculty of the University of Cologne. We will accommodate 18 participants, who are expected to be later phase M.Sc. students.

Principal Investigators involved:

Ansgar Büschges (chair)
Sigrun Korsching (vice chair)
Jens Brüning
Alexander Drzezga
Gereon Fink
Silvia Gruhn
Matthias Hammerschmidt
Peter Kloppenburg
Elena Rugarli
Henrike Scholz
Carmen Wellmann
Brunhilde Wirth
