Stimulating Brains X Brain City Berlin

Next talk: Tim West & David Haslacher

Friday, September 15th, 6 PM Berlin time

Science apéro with appetizers & beverages: from 5:15 PM Berlin time (Berlin on-site)

This event will be hosted on-site in Berlin: Lecture Hall of the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (Haus 6, Philippstraße 13, 10117 Berlin)

Our Concept

In recent years, the “connectomic revolution” has motivated a growing interest in network mechanisms and targets of both invasive and non-invasive brain stimulation therapies. As inspired by our virtual talk series, this Berlin-based, in-person spin-off will center around a dual focus on advances in neuromodulation and connectomics. 

Each session of the series features an international headline speaker paired with a more junior speaker from Berlin. There will be a joint discussion after the two talks and besides the science, the headline speaker will share exciting insights on “the person behind the science”. The aim is to make sessions instructive not only about network neuromodulation, but also about careers, milestones, sources of inspiration, etc. 

Up for a sciency apéro with appetizers and beverages prior to the talks, all on us? Then join us early for a chance to meet the speakers! We hope to create a positive networking environment – that beyond the “what” advocates toward an improved “how” – and foster a close-knit community for future international collaborations.
