Mystery of the Brain

Science’s ultimate frontier

Symposium in honor of Prof. Nikos K. Logothetis

September 16 – 19, 2019, Neue Aula, Tübingen

Mysteries of the brain have inspired many bright minds over the past century. A product of natural evolution, the brain remains unbeatable by any man-made machine. The structural complexity and the dynamics of neural network self-organization require multimodal and multidisciplinary approaches providing information at all possible spatiotemporal scales. Sophisticated mathematical tools are a “must” in the endeavour of processing and understanding such multidimensional data, but are currently utterly insufficient in providing true “brain-analogues” in a formal language, or even realistic models for driving robots.  Data acquisition remains the only promising path, and not surprisingly, we have been witnessing massive and impressive developments of experimental tools permitting direct access to the brain’s mass. This symposium aims to present, discuss and enthusiastically promote multimodal approaches for tackling Brain Mysteries.
