As a private research institute, the Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI) for Neuroscience performes medical scientific projects mainly in the field of cognitive brain research. The Institute’s scientists research the principles behind the communication and interaction between the billions of cells in the brain, how the particular dynamics of the brain arise in the process, and how these interactions ultimately shape human behaviour.
The legally independent Ernst Strüngmann Institute for Neuroscience cooperates closely with the Max Planck Society: the selection of its scientists and evaluation of its research studies are carried out in accordance with the Max Planck Society’s criteria for excellence, and its Directors are Scientific Members of the MPS. The Ernst Strüngmann Institute for Neuroscience is financed by the Ernst Strüngmann Foundation which was established by the brothers Andreas and Thomas Strüngmann in memory of their father Ernst Strüngmann in 2008.
There is always the possibility to do a PhD. Please contact the directors or research group leaders at the Institute.
