Caesar is a Neuroscience research institute of the Max Planck Society. Caesar’s research is interdisciplinary with scientists from various research areas working together on the topics of cellular signal processing and the neural foundations of behavior. 


Robustness during neuron firings - Superficial cortical interneurons decrease trial-to-trial variability in pyramidal neuron responses to sensory input

Reconstructed single neurons from the rat cortex

16.11. Scientists at the research center caesar in Bonn have, in cooperation with the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics and the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, discovered a potential mechanism of how cortical neurons decrease trial-to-trial variability in their response to sensory input. To gain this insight the researchers used computational modeling to generate predictions that were then tested in vivo using electrophysiological measurements. [more]

Inauguration of the first transatlantic Max Planck Research School

28.10. A new, cutting-edge Ph.D. training and research program in the neurosciences is recruiting its first students in March 2016. The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Brain and Behavior will be the first IMPRS to unite Max Planck Institutes and their university partners on both sides of the Atlantic. The scientific focus of the research school is to understand organizational principles of the brain that underlie behavior. Dr. Jason Kerr, a scientific director of the research center caesar in Bonn, is the chair of the graduate school. [more]
