Neuroforum is published both in print and online; the review articles are published in English only. In addition to these overview articles, both issues contain short reports on new methods and research developments, presentations of institutes, research groups and research programs, comments and controversies as well as reviews and news from the Neurowissenschaftliche Gesellschaft e.V. (NWG).
Neuroforum was founded by the NWG and currently has just over 2,300 members. The NWG represents the interests of basic scientists who are concerned with the development, functioning, performance and disorders of the brain and nervous system. As a non-profit association, it works independently of economic interests. The NWG has set itself the goal of promoting the neurosciences in research and teaching and to represent them in all their sub-areas at home and abroad.
The SFB 1280 introduces itself in the Neuroforum. Onur Güntürkün and Dagmar Timmann-Braun give an insight into the work of the Collaborative Research Center and clarify the question what extinction learning means. Furthermore, the conceptual structure of the SFB 1280, the presentation of the subprojects, the structural framework and the future plans of the SFB 1280 will be discussed.
