On April 19, Kauê Costa successfully defended his thesis, titled "KChIP4a: a biophysical modulator of learning from disappointment" at the Goethe University (Frankfurt in Germany).
Scientists from the Schuman Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research have investigated the variety of structures and functions in non-coding parts of messenger RNA (mRNA) from brain cells. These untranslated regions...
Max Planck neuroscientist Hiroshi Ito is awarded a prestigious grant from the Human Frontiers Science Program
Research Group Leader Hiroshi Ito (Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, Frankfurt, Germany) has been awarded a Young Investigators Grant from the Human Frontiers Science Program of more than one million USD in total. Together...
Max Planck researchers Nataliya Kraynyukova and Tatjana Tchumatchenko have explored how the structure of neural networks is related to their ability to produce a set of fundamental cortical functions. They have shown that only...
Tatjana’s project is part of the Priority Programme “Computational Connectomics”, a newly established research programme which aims to facilitate the automated reconstruction of neural connectivity by strengthening the...
Anja Gemmer works in the Schuman Lab where she studies the role of oxytocin in zebrafish. Anja is delighted about the additional funding for the next year, which she intends to spend on household help and additional childcare...
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research have found a way to measure newly synthesized proteins in artificially grown nerve cells from the rat hippocampus after regulating their connectivity for a certain amount...
In mammals, such as cats or humans, the six-layered cerebral cortex is one of the most important brain areas for conscious processing of sensory information. Cortical evolution started many millions of years before humans and...
As part of its 25th anniversary, Focus Magazine selected Tatjana Tchumatchenko (Max Planck Research Group Leader at our Institute) as one of 25 young innovators who will shape Germany in the future.
