In the Computational Systems Neuroscience group we investigate information processing in nervous systems of different animal models. In an interdisciplinary team we combine theoretical and experimental approaches with the ultimate goal to formulate valid theories and testable model hypotheses.

We are hiring postdocs and PhD students!
Click here to find out about our open positions.

We co-organize the Cologne Theoretical Neuroscience Forum (CTNF) with regular public talks available here.

We are member of:
