Lageplan Ini

The Institut für Neuroinformatik is located on the south-east side of the university campus (building NB marked in orange in the map above). If travelling by car, you should follow one of the red paths to the INI (Note that currently the road south of NA and NB is temporarily closed 03-2019). 

PARKING: Most of the parking lots are gated. You should park in the large parking structure which is beneath the central part of the university (see Audimax) or on the street, in marked spaces. Illegally parked vehicals may be ticketed and towed.

The research unit FOR 2812 "Constructing scenarios of the past: A new framework in episodic memory" is a project funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG). The research unit studies the cognitive and neuronal mechanisms underlying scenario construction in episodic memory. We employ and integrate approaches from Philosophy, Psychology, and Experimental and Computational Neuroscience.
