Areas of research

 

Magdeburg enjoys an outstanding reputation in the academic world as a top-tier neuroscience research site with researchers of world renown. Additional impulses are given through the Excellence Initiative of the Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt.

Neuroscience has traditionally been an integral part and profile-defining aspect of the Medical Academy of Magdeburg (founded in 1954) in which the study of learning and memory processes played a prominent role. After the founding of the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) in Magdeburg in the eighties, and the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg (OVGU) in the nineties, a cross-faculty cooperation emerged that led Magdeburg towards a center of competence for neuroscientific research. To improve networking and synergies within this diverse research landscape the Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences (CBBS) was founded in February 2007. The CBBS organizes the interdisciplinary work of research-intensive groups in experimental and clinical neurosciences and related fields. It supports the next generation of scientists, sources external funding and coordinates the transfer of research.
