Let's celebrate neuroscience and the newest discoveries in brain research. This night promises to dive deeply into brain biology and understand fundamental phenomena of behavior, brain activity, neuronal networks and wiring. Our speakers are happy to answer any question related to their talks or field of research. There are no such things as stupid questions ;-) All talks are in English.

How neurons 'talk': new discoveries in neuronal communication via the transfer of biological material

(This talk is in English)
Let's discover a totally new way of how neurons communicate with each other using extracellular vesicles. Cells have been known for a long time to release vesicles to the extracellular environment during cell death. However, the fact that healthy cells also release vesicles to the extracellular environment for communication has only being recently realized.

What's in a wave? Trying to understand brain activity

(This talk is in English)
At the root of all our thoughts, emotions and behaviors is the communication between neurons within our brains. Brainwaves are produced by synchronized electrical pulses from masses of neurons communicating with each other. This neuroscientific talk will elucidate the basics of brain waves and how we can use them to gain more insights into our brain functions.

Imaging brain and behavior in freely moving animals

Jason Kerr (Prof.)
(This talk is in English)
Currently, a major challenge in vision neuroscience is how an animal’s interaction with the environment can be understood in terms of neural activity. What makes this an especially difficult problem is that the link between brain function and behavior can only be studied in a behaving animal, and as visually based decision making behaviors involve a combination of head movements, eye movements, and vestibular driven neuronal activity to guide behavior, studying the freely moving animal is paramount. Come and experience what is going on in recent research.

Networks in the brain

(This talk is in English)
Networks are everywhere: from Instagram to the brain and back! Over the last decade, the study of complex networks has expanded across diverse scientific fields. Learn, how networks connect levels of organization in the brain and how they link structure to function. By the way, humor is also a complex cognitive construct ;-)
