First German – Norwegian college in integrated neuroscience
The International Center for Integrated Neuroscience at the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald (ICIN) is the first German-Norwegian college for postgraduate fellows.
It offers fellowships for 12 elected PhD students for the next 3 years to study the cause of fear and to graduate at one of the universities in Greifswald, Trier (both Germany) and Bergen (Norway). The ICIN is an effort to establish an international research network. The main target of this network is to study how the brain regulates cognitive and affective functions and how these brain processes are involved in the pathogenesis and therapy of various clinical problems.
At the official opening the plenary lesson “The Fear Module in the Brain will be given by Professor Dr. Arne Öhmann, head of the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institut and member of the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet,.
The ICIN will be sponsored by the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung (ca. 800.000 Euro).
