With this event, the Bernstein Center Berlin and its Graduate Programs
will celebrate two years of activities of the DFG-funded Research
Training Group "Sensory Computation in Neural Systems". A highlight of
the program is the opening of the Berlin Center for Advanced
Neuroimaging (BCAN), a new facility that houses two 3-Tesla MRI
scanners and that promotes computational techniques in neuroimaging.
For this joint occasion, there will be a number of excellent
international speakers (see below). We also invite other
neuroscientists from all over the world to discuss their most recent
findings and hypotheses in the field of brain computation and
