Munich Neuroscience Lectures

München, 04/26/2016

Munich’s neuroscience institutes have invited well known specialists in various disciplines to present a series of lectures on current issues of neurobiological interest.

MCNThe Munich Neuroscience Lecture Series, which gets underway on May 2nd, is organized jointly by the Munich Center for Neurosciences at LMU, the Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience. The event replaces the highly successful MCN Monday Lecture Series, which began 10 years ago. Like its predecessor, the new format provides an interdisciplinary forum for students and active researchers. The monthly lectures are generally scheduled for on the first Monday of each month (during term time) at 6 PM.

The series opens with a talk given by David Tank, Professor of Molecular Biology and Physics at Princeton University, on Measurements and Analysis of Neural Circuit Dynamics.

On June 6th Dr. Jeff Magee of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Baltimore (Maryland, USA) will describe and discuss “A Fundamental Microcircuit in Neocortex and Hippocampus”.

The series will be continued in the coming Winter Semester 2016/17 with a lecture by Professor Karl Friston of University College London, entitled “I am, therefore I think”, on November 7th.

All lectures will be given in the Biocenter at LMU. For more information on the Munich Neuroscience Lecture Series, including the dates and subjects of further lectures see:
