Research Programme

The SFB Transregio 384 is a transregional consortium of 23 principle investigators (PIs) from Freiburg (Universität Freiburg), Heidelberg (Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg) and Berlin (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin) that focuses on the study of inhibitory neurons to understand their role in information processing and coding in the brain. Using state-of-the-art techniques, we aim to gain new insights into the cortical code, which could be fundamental for the development of innovative treatment strategies for neurological and mental disorders.

Promoting Gender Equality, Diversity and Family Friendliness
