International Collaborations

The Company We Keep

Great academic and scientific establishments attract equally distinguished partners to conduct research on the most sophisticated level. ELSC is proud to have has established more than a dozen scientific collaborations with leading institutes in Europe, the Far East and North America, among them:

The Max Planck-Hebrew University Center for Sensory Processing of the Brain in Action focuses on unraveling the causal relationships between neuronal mechanisms underlying sensory processing and the changes that they undergo based on the behavioral state of the animal. The Max Planck Society is Germany's most successful research organization.

The Gatsby Tri-Centre collaboration between the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit at University College in London, the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at Colombia University in New York and ELSC supports research in theoretical and computational neuroscience provides doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships, and sponsors conferences, lectures and common projects.

The EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne)-Hebrew University Collaboration in Brain Research aims to advance understanding of the brain mechanisms that govern behavior and cognition and facilitate the development of new treatments for brain disorders. EPFL is considered one of the most prestigious universities in the world for engineering and scientific study and research.


ELSC professors also collaborate with their international colleagues at important institutions throughout the world including: ICM (Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière) in Paris; Colombia University’s Grossman Center for the Statistics of Mind in New York; Harvard University’s Center for Brain Sciences and the McGovern Institute for Brain Science at MIT, both in Boston.
