Welcome to the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Göttingen

The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Goettingen aims at finding the cooperative dynamics and adaptivity in neuronal systems. It integrates research groups at the

Georg-August Universitaet Goettingen
Max Planck Institute for biophysical Chemistry
(incl. BiomedNMR)
Max Planck Institute for experimental Medicine
Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization
(Dept. of Nonlinear Dynamics)
German Primate Center
Otto-Bock HealthCare


The coordinator of the BCCN Goettingen is Prof Wolf, Professor at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization and Honorary Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Goettingen who succeeded Prof Geisel, director at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization and Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Goettingen in March 2013.

Leibniz Prize 2015 for Tobias Moser


The BCCN Göttingen is part of the "National Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience" and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Germany.

The BMBF has bestowed the title of "Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience" to honour Bernstein's scientific achievements. In his "Membrane Theory" of 1902, the German physiologist Julius Bernstein gave the earliest biophysical explanation of propagating action potentials and thereby provided the first truly quantitative theory in electrophysiology.
