Sensory Research in Göttingen is jointly pursued by scientists of the university (schools of Medicine, Biology and Physics) and the various non-university institutions (German Primate Center, Max-Planck-Institutes for experimental Medicine, for biophysical Chemistry as well as Dynamics and Self-Organization). Research aims to elucidate sensory processing at the molecular, cellular and systems levels by experimental and theoretical approaches.
The community runs the "Sensory Club", a dedicated forum for discussing new research findings made in Göttingen and a
"Göttingen Sensory Lecture" series with distinguished speakers from outside Göttingen.
Training in sensory research is of great importance to us and is organized in dedicated PhD programs, working under the roof of the
Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences and Molecular Biosciences "GGNB"
"Sensory and Motor Neuroscience"
"Theoretical and Computational Neurosiences"
"MSc/PhD program Neuroscience"
"Faculty of Biology"
