    Welcome to the LIN,

    We are united in our fascination for the brain. About 230 people work at the LIN, including around 100 scientists from approx. 25 countries.

    We study the network, neuronal, and synaptic processes which control learning, memory, attention, and motivation in animals and humans, and how these processes can be affected by brain disorders.

    Our vision: Making brain processes understandable

Welcome to the LIN!

The Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) in Magdeburg is an internationally renowned centre for learning and memory research. Neurobiologists, medics, psychologists, biochemists, and physicists work in interdisciplinary groups to decode the brain mechanisms of learning and memory processes on all organisational levels – from molecular and cellular processes or neural networks to the analysis of complex patterns of human and animal behaviour. According to Leibniz’ maxim “Theoria cum Praxi” the LIN is committed to the fundamental research of functions in the healthy brain as well as to a causal understanding of its diseases.

The LIN is a member of the Leibniz Association and constitutes a main pillar of the neurosciences in Magdeburg with the Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences.
