Multi-scale network modeling

Computational Neurophysics

Group leader:
Prof. Dr. Markus Diesmann

The focus of this group are bottom-up approaches in order to integrate physiological and anatomical data into models, in particular model development, theory of neuronal networks, and correlation dynamics. This also requires the development of simulation technology for neural networks. More: Computational Neurophysics …

Statistical Neuroscience Lab

Statistical Neuroscience

Group Leader:
Prof. Dr. Sonja Grün

Development and application of methods to analyse multi-channel activity data in close contact to experimental groups. A focus is the connection between neural data recorded on different temporal and spatial scales and on the structure of correlations of spiking activity. More: Statistical Neuroscience …

top down approach

Functional Neural Circuits

Group leader:
Prof. Dr. Abigail Morrison

Investigation of mechanisms underlying neural computation through the development of models on the level of networks of spiking neurons. This group applies a predominantly top-down approach to discover functional constraints on structure, plasticity and dynamics, particularly with respect to learning and memory. Secondary focus on simulation technology for high-performance computers. More: Functional Neural Circuits …

multiscale theory

Theory of multi-scale neuronal networks

Group leader:
Dr. Moritz Helias

The focus of this group is the investigation of mechanisms shaping the correlated and oscillatory activity in neuronal networks with structured connectivity on several spatial scales. This requires the development of quantitative theoretical descriptions, adapted from statistical physics, combined with direct simulations of neuronal networks at cellular resolution.

Scientific Cooperations And Large-Scale Research Projects

We are working on multi-scale models of the brain, including data-driven theory, bottom-up simulations and functional top-down models. Our institute realizes the research goals in close cooperations with experimental and theoretical groups and we are active partners in several large-scale research projects. Here you find a list of our partners and projects. More: Scientific Cooperations And Large-Scale Research Projects …

Open Source Tools

We greatfully acknowledge numerous Open Source tools that support our daily research activities. More: Open Source Tools …

Theoretical Neuroanatomy

The focus of this work group will be on the analysis of anatomical data on the microscopic and macroscopic level and the development of the required mathematical methods for their assessment and representation as well as the set up and maintenance of data bases providing and unifying anatomical data sets from different sources. More: Theoretical Neuroanatomy …

Bernstein Coordination Site

The Bernstein Coordination Site (BCOS) is the international representation of the Bernstein Network and supports Bernstein scientists in their joint activities and networking and carries out central public relations work. BCOS serves as a link to the funding agencies and other partners. Jülich operates BCOS from 2015. More: Bernstein Coordination Site …
