Understanding Thought Processes

The Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics is studying signal and information processing in the brain. We know that our brain is constantly processing a vast amount of sensory and intrinsic information with which our behavior is coordinated accordingly. Interestingly, how the brain actually achieves these tasks is less well understood, for example, how it perceives, recognizes, and learns new objects. The scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics aim to determine which signals and processes are responsible for creating a coherent percept of our environment and for eliciting the appropriate behavior. Scientists of three departments and seven research groups are working towards answering fundamental questions about processing in the brain, using different approaches and methods.

The Max Planck Institutes for Developmental Biology, Biological Cybernetics and Intelligent Systems, as well as the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory will present themselves to the public: The scientists at Tübingen's Max Planck Campus cordially invite all interested parties from near and far, to gain insights into current research and work at the institutes. On tours, exhibitions, hands-on activities and lectures, everything will revolve around genetics, evolution, virtual reality, brain research and artificial intelligence for two days. Whether young or old - there is something for everyone!

Max Planck Day: September 14, 2018
Day of the open house: September 15, 2018
