Bülthoff (Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics), Prof. Andreas Nieder (Department of Biology, University of Tübingen).

After a welcome address by Prof. Dr. Thomas Gasser, co-initiator of the TNC, the Vice-President of Research and Innovation, Prof. Dr. Peter Grathwohl, presented the inauguration certificate on behalf of the President of the University of Tübingen. This was followed by several lectures which informed the numerous guests about the perspectives of the neurosciences in Tübingen. The TNC is intended to interconnect Tübingen research groups and institutions in the field of neuroscience, to promote scientific cooperation and to facilitate the internationalization and recruitment of excellent scientists. Building on a long and successful tradition in the neurosciences, the TNC will secure and further develop Tübingen's position among the international leading sites.

The Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics is studying signal and information processing in the brain. The scientists aim to determine which signals and processes are responsible for creating a coherent percept of our environment and for eliciting the appropriate behavior. Scientists of three departments and several research groups are working towards answering fundamental questions about processing in the brain, using different approaches and methods.
The Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics is one of 84 Max Planck Institutes and facilities that make up the Max Planck Society, Germany's most successful research organization. Since its establishment in 1948, no fewer than 18 Nobel laureates have emerged from the ranks of its scientists, putting it on a par with the best and most prestigious research institutions worldwide. All Institutes conduct basic research in the service of the general public in the natural sciences, life sciences, social sciences, and the humanities.
