The Neurosciences programme offered by the University of Bremen will provide you with a broad background in the neurosciences as well as with the possibility to specialise in a favourite subject. 


The Neurosciences programme offered by the University of Bremen  was designed to enable our students to perform excellent research based on first-class teaching. Teaching and education is provided by a team of internationally renowned scientists from the fields of biology, physics, and psychology. Close collaboration with other research groups of the University of Bremen, like the Institute of Microsensors, -actuators, and –systems (IMSAS), the Research Groups Cognitive Neuroinformatics, or the Research Group Neurobiochemistry, as well as our extensive exchange with partner universities all over the world contribute to the rich possibilities of specialising in cutting-edge neuroscience research.

Fascinating discipline

The Neurosciences are among the most fascinating disciplines of the life sciences. They combine concepts and methods from biology, physics, chemistry, informatics, medicine and psychology. Neuroscience research has a tremendous impact on our society, since it deals with the functioning and malfunctioning of the brain – the organ that governs our thinking, feeling and our behaviour. 

At the University of Bremen, Neuroscience research is conducted by an interdisciplinary team of researchers from biology, physics, and psychology, providing in-depth education in all fundamental aspects of modern neuroscience – spanning the range from mathematical and neuro-computational concepts to hands-on experience in single- and multi-electrode recordings, optogenetics, neuropharmacology, and functional imaging.
