The SFB 1280 goes into the next round! We are pleased to announce that another funding period has been approved by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for the SFB 1280. This means that there is nothing standing in the way of the researchers, who will now take a closer look at their findings and considerations from the first funding period in new studies.
The RUB news portal reports on the extension of the SFB 1280:
The SFB 1280 “Extinction Learning” has set itself ambitious goals for the second funding period: “In our research we want to comprehensively understand the mechanisms of extinction learning, from genes to the brain to behaviour,” explains spokesperson Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Onur Güntürkün, holder of the Chair of Biopsychology at the RUB. “In doing so, we want to use or develop new methods that make it possible to track what happens in the brain during learning from the individual cell to the entire system, manipulate it experimentally and simulate it with computational models.” Based on these findings, the team hopes to develop new therapeutic options for patients suffering from anxiety disorders or chronic pain.
