How does our brain work? Several international institutions in Frankfurt are trying to find answers to this question: The Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, the Ernst Strüngmann Institute and the Goethe University Frankfurt have been researching the brain - in some cases for decades - while the non-profit Hertie Foundation has been funding neuroscience research since the early 1970s.
In addition to these institutions, the history of the city of Frankfurt also has much to offer our upper brain: important personalities, events, and research results related to neuroscientific topics. Some of these go back to the 19th century and thus spring from the cradle of modern brain research, so to speak.
To show how much brain Frankfurt has, the neuroscientific institutions of the Main city have joined forces and present the website "Frankfurt hat Hirn" (Frankfurt has brain) on the occasion of the international Brain Awareness Week 2021.
Visit the website and be inspired by Frankfurt's diverse research and unexpected connections to the brain and neuroscience. Due to the local focus, the website is only available in German.
