Talks & Events

Several talks and events are taking place on the Max Planck Campus, for scientists and students as well as for general audiences. External guests are very welcome to attend. Not only our own scientists, but also well-known guests from all over the world are presenting up-to-date research from different fields of the life sciences, e.g. neurobiology, cognitive sciences, cell biology, genetics and bioinformatics.

Upcoming events


Science's Ultimate Frontier

Symposium in honor of Prof. Nikos K. Logothetis

The Mystery of the Brain has inspired many bright minds over the past century. A product of natural evolution, the brain remains unbeatable by any man-made machine. The structural complexity and the dynamics of neural network self-organization require multimodal and multidisciplinary approaches providing information at all possible spatiotemporal scales. Sophisticated mathematical tools are a "must" in the path of processing and understanding such multidimensional data, but are currently utterly insufficient in providing true "brain-analogs" in a formal language, or models for driving robots! Data acquisition remains the only promising path, and not surprisingly we have been witnessing massive and impressive developments of experimental tools permitting a direct access to the brain's mass. This symposium aims to present, discuss and enthusiastically promote multimodal approaches for tackling the Brain-Mysteries. More information:
