Research at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics
We expand knowledge through innovative insights.
The research activities at our institute are rather broad and interdisciplinary. Therefore, our scientific fields can hardly be assigned to one single area. The main focus is on neuroscience, but also physics and medicine as well as mathematics and computer science. We undertake numerous projects with our neighbouring institutes, in particular with the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, with the University of Tübingen and many other research institutions in Germany and abroad.
With regard to the structure of our institute, we are divided into departments, research groups, guest programs and free-floater units. Free Floaters are junior groups who work on innovative research projects with small but flexible teams over a certain period of time.
