Neurosciences at the Tübingen site
Cluster of Excellence
Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN)
The neurosciences have been an internationally visible focus of the University of Tübingen for many years. The "Center for Integrative Neuroscience" (CIN) was approved in November 2007 as part of the Excellence Initiative. (Duration including extension 01.01.2008 until 31.12.2017)
German centres of health research
German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE)
The DZNE is a research centre in the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres that focuses on neurodegenerative diseases. Its mission is to understand the causes and risk factors that predetermine neurodegeneration and to develop new therapeutic and care strategies. In order to bundle the successful German research in the field of neurodegeneration, the DZNE works closely with its partner universities.
Bernstein Centre for Computational Neuroscience
Despite considerable progress, neuroprostheses and brain-machine interfaces controlled by neuronal signals and suitable for everyday use are visions of the future, the realisation of which requires the solution of numerous fundamental biological, technical, information-technological, clinical and ethical problems. The aim of the network is to develop bidirectional, hybrid neurotechnological systems for humans.
SFB 1233 - Robustness of vision
The Collaborative Research Centre "Robustness of vision - principles of inference and neural mechanisms" (SFB 1233) deals with the basics of biological and mechanical vision.
FOR 2715 - Epileptogenesis of genetic epilepsies
The research group, which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), aims to elucidate the mechanisms of genetically determined forms of epilepsy. The spokesperson is Professor Dr. Holger Lerche at the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research at the University of Tübingen and the University Hospital of Tübingen.
Center for Neurosensors
What is neurosensors? Here you will find further information about neurosenorics and its socio-economic relevance
Centre for Mental Health
Tübingen's general psychiatry and psychotherapy offers a modern range of treatment for the entire spectrum of mental illnesses, tailored to the patients and their needs. It has the most modern diagnostic procedures at its disposal, so that even complex mental illnesses can be clarified.
Center for Neurovascular Diseases (ZNET)
The diagnosis, therapy and prevention of neurovascular diseases as well as basic and clinical research on neurovascular diseases is a profile area at the University Hospital Tübingen and the Faculty of Medicine.
Graduate Training Center of Neuroscience
Specialized training for young scientists is provided by the Graduate Training Center of Neuroscience, which unites three neuroscientific graduate schools.
