The Brain Dynamics Graduate School is a collaborative network of more than 40 neuroscience research groups located at the Leipzig University and Max Planck Institutes.
The Brain Dynamics Graduate School combines the expertise of neuroscientists at the Leipzig University and external scientific institutions into a structured inter-disciplinary, inter-departmental graduate program that provides training of internationally competitive doctoral candidates. The school spans full spectrum of neuroscientific fields of research, from molecular and cellular level to systemic and clinical neuroscience. In research areas covered by the program, such as neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, computational neuroscience, and cognitive neuroscience, scientists use various model systems ranging from fruit flies to humans, with the aim to understand information processing in the brain and improve treatment of neurobiological disorders.
