Seminars in Neuroscience

The “Seminars in Neuroscience“ is an open seminar series organized by the neuroscience groups of the University of Cologne and the Forschungszentrum Jülich. It also hosts talks organized by the Research Training Group "Neural Circuit Analysis on the cellular and subcellular level" funded by the DFG. In the past years, more than 50 renowned scientists from all over the world have been invited to share their projects and experience with the audience. The seminars are biweekly taking place on Mondays between 12:00 and 2:00 pm and last about an hour including questions posed by the audience. Everybody intersted in neuroscience (especially students) is very welcome to attend!
