Research at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics

The aim of the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics is to understand information processing in the brains of humans and animals. We use experimental, theoretical and computational methods to elucidate the characteristics and implementations of the cascades of plastic and recurrent interactions that transform sensory data into perceptions, memories, appropriate choices of actions, and motor output.

The MPI for Biological Cybernetics has several departments with different research foci. Scientists from different disciplines use different methods to investigate the structure and functions of the brain. [more]
There are several independent research groups at the MPI for Biological Cybernetics. They have their own scientific focus and pursue independent research projects. [more]
Former directors and their departments can be found here. [more]

As part of our research, we also develop our own software, which we gladly make available to others. Our software can be found here. [more]
