Blick auf das Gebäude vom Leibniz-Institut für Neurobiologie

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.
