In times of this pandemic, we review and highlight news from 2019 and 2020.

Since mid-March, the MPI for Brain Research has been operating with many people working from home, whilst allowing a minimum number of scientists and staff in the building to keep our science and operations running.

While we have postponed many on-site events, including our annual Ethics in Science- and our Neuroscience Lectures, we are doing our best to keep science moving forward and to support our people and society.
