Memories of Tomorrow
Our research consortium is a large scientific platform of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and the University of Duisburg-Essen, which combines our successful research traditions of neuroscience and cognition. The consortium consists of scientists from various fields such as psychology, medicine, theoretical neuroscience, philosophy, and biology. They jointly untie mechanisms of learning, memory, cognition, and action that constantly change with every new encounter of our lives. Here you can find out more about the consortium and its researchers, infrastructure and career perspectives as well as their international cooperation.
Join us on-site or online!
