Institute for Neurobiology
The institute covers neurobiology from physiology to cognition; the scientific focus is on system neurobiology.
The institute is participating in the Werner-Reichardt-Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN, excellence cluster), and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Tübingen BCCN.
The Master's Degree program in biology offers the possibility to earn a master's degree with specialization in Neuroscience. A PhD program is available at the Faculty of Science.
We also participate in the programs of bioinformatics, cognitive science and the Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience.
