Artist in Lab
On January 24, 2005, the Art Foundation of Saxony-Anhalt initiated a new project, “Artist-in-Lab". The partners of this unique and statewide alliance were the Department of Neurology of Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg, the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology in Magdeburg, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials in Halle.
In an invited address at the 2008 annual convention of the German Society for Clinical Neurophysiology and Functional Imaging, Prof. H.-J. Heinze - Director of the Otto-von-Guericke Department of Neurology, convention president, and president of the DGKN - stated that "Learning and Memory" was a central theme at the conference and plays a preeminent role in neurological research at Magdeburg.
