Brain Dynamics Seminar Series

The Seminar Series takes place every second Friday at 12:00, initially via Zoom and as in-person talks as soon as the pandemic restrictions are lifted. It is envisaged to bring doctoral students, postdocs and PIs together and to facilitate the exchange of ideas within the scientific community.
