Developmental Neuroscience in Freiburg

Developmental Neuroscience


Developmental neuroscience draws on the fields of developmental biology, neurophysiology, and neurology to investigate the processes involved in the formation, shaping and reshaping of the nervous system in animals. For this purpose, the discipline traces how these processes progress from embryogenesis to adulthood. Through this approach, developmental neuroscience is able to look into the cellular and molecular workings behind development. In Freiburg, this research is addressed through the investigation of zebra fish.
