The Neurosciences are among the most fascinating disciplines of the life sciences. They combine concepts and methods from biology, physics, chemistry, informatics, medicine and psychology. Neuroscience research has a tremendous impact on our society, since it deals with the functioning and malfunctioning of the brain – the organ that governs our thinking, feeling and our behaviour.
At the University of Bremen, Neuroscience research is conducted by an interdisciplinary team of researchers from biology, physics, and psychology, providing in-depth education in all fundamental aspects of modern neuroscience – spanning the range from mathematical and neuro-computational concepts to hands-on experience in single- and multi-electrode recordings: cognitive neurophysiology, optogenetics, neuropharmacology, theoretical neurophysics and functional imaging.
