On Max Planck Day, September 14, 2018 a wide range of activities took place in 32 cities across Germany. All visitors had the opportunity to experience research at Max Planck live - and to discuss current issues with the people behind this research. The MPI for Brain Research in Frankfurt also participated with a series of public events.

We looked back at the interesting, but also tragic history of the MPI and its predessor, the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Brain Research, and full of confidence, we look to the future for another successful and exciting 100 years of brain research in our new Institute building at the Natural Sciences Campus in Frankfurt-Riedberg.more
