URPP Adaptive Brain Circuits in Development and Learning (AdaBD)

Past events

AdaBD Special Seminar

How do genes and environment shape brain structure and function?

Dr. Sofie Valk, Cognitive Neurogenetics, Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig

Tuesday, October 31, 2023, 12:30 - 13:30, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, 8057 Zürich, Room Y35-F-32

Panel discussion organized together with the Developmental Science Network Zurich

Podiumsdiskussion: Lernstörungen / Lernschwierigkeiten

Tuesday, October 31 2023, 16.30 - 18:00 (online, in German)

Difficulties in the acquisition of written language (reading, spelling) and / or in the acquisition of mathematical skills often lead to suffering among children and adolescents as well as parents and teachers and often have a negative impact on the educational opportunities.

We discussed the topic from different perspectives with four proven experts from the Zurich area and with the audience.

With AdaBD researchers Silvia Brem and Karin Kucian

Scientifica 23: Was die Welt zusammenhält

Vom Kind zum Erwachsenen: Das Lernen verstehen und fördern

Exhibition Booth
September 2th - 3th, 2023

Have you ever wondered how you learn? Or why some people show developmental or learning disorders? To answer these questions, we are investigating using different imaging techniques how neurons communicate. This should help to better support children and adults in learning.

Scientifica 21: Natürlich künstlich

Wie lernen Mensch und Maschine?

Exhibition Booth
September 4th - 5th, 2021 (in German)

When humans learn, the neural networks in the brain adapt their structure and function to new situations. Artificial neural networks behave similarly. But what exactly happens in the human brain and in machines? And why do some children show learning deficits and developmental disorders?

URPP Kick-off Event

Five new University Research Priority Programs

In January 2021, the five new University Research Priority Programs (URPP) of the third series have started their work. At a kick-off event, we presented the projects in more detail.

The event was open to the public and took place online.
