For Research. For Berlin.

Edvard I. Moser

The neuroscientist and psychologist Edvard Moser won 2014 the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine together with May-Britt Moser and John O'Keefe for identifying so-called grid cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain making orientation within space possible. In Berlin Edvard Moser will conduct his research as an Einstein BIH Visting Fellow in a newly founded lab together with Dietmar Schmitz. Aim of this research collaboration will be to gain deeper understanding of the functioning of grid cells.
