Aktuelles aus der Hirnforschung – neu auch in Liestal
Unter dem Titel «Hirnforschung für alle» präsentiert das Netzwerk Neuroscience Network Basel der Universität Basel seine Aktivitäten neu auch in Liestal. In einer öffentlichen Freilichtausstellung zeigen vom 21. September 2017 bis am 1. Oktober 2017 Forschende aus Basel faszinierende Bilder aus ihrer Arbeit. Zudem vermitteln an zwei Vortragsabenden Wissenschaftler aus Liestal und Basel die aktuellen Erkenntnisse aus ihrer Forschung. Der Eintritt zu den Veranstaltungen ist frei. Mehr

Synapses in the brain mirror the structure of the visual world
The research team of Prof. Sonja Hofer at the Biozentrum, University of Basel, has discovered why our brain might be so good at perceiving edges and contours. Neurons that respond to different parts of elongated edges are connected and thus exchange information. This can make it easier for the brain to identify contours of objects. The results of the study are now published in the journal “Nature”. More

Walking is bound hand and foot: How long projecting neurons couple the movement of our limbs
We humans walk with our feet. This is true, but not entirely. Walking, as part of locomotion, is a coordinated whole-body movement that involves both the arms and legs. Researchers at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel and the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research have identified different subpopulations of neurons in the spinal cord with long projections. Published in “Neuron”, the results show that these neurons coordinate movement of arms and legs and ensure a stable body posture during locomotion. More

Die nächste Woche des Gehirns findet vom 18. - 22. März 2019 statt.


Friday, 2nd February 2018, 9.00h - 17.30h

The Bench-to-Bedside Symposium is the main event of the Neuroscience Network Basel (NNB) and takes place annually during the winter break. The one-day symposium is organized by members of the NNB and is a platform for neuroscientists from a wide range of institutional backgrounds to discuss and exchange ideas on selected current research topics. Researchers from basic research (“bench”) as well as from (bio)-medical research (“bedside”) present their recent findings, and discuss their findings following their talk as well as during the breaks. The symposium is an important platform for students not only to meet group leaders but most of all, to learn to connect and understand research findings of different areas of neurosciences.. More
