CRC 951: Organic/anorganic hybrid systems (HIOS)

Artificial hybrid materials consisting of semi-conductors, conjugated organic molecules and metallic nano-structures are in the centre of this research. As a result of the interaction of these very different components, new chemical and physical properties come into being, which need to be understood, controlled and utilized in order to be able to carry out increasingly complex opto-electronic functions in minute spaces.

CRC 1315: Mechanismen und Störungen der Gedächtnis-Konsolidierung: Von Synapsen zur Systemebene

How does long-term memory work? That is the key question at the heart of the new Collaborative Research Center SFB 1315. Memory makes us who we are as humans; however, memory is also a complex set of processes that can be understood on many levels from basic storage mechanisms to large-scale cognitive processing. This is where the SFB 1315 comes in. Its aim is to describe and understand memory as a whole from the basic processes right up to human cognition – in other words, to generate a theory of memory. In particular, the SFB 1315 will focus on how memories are consolidated over time. In addition, the team of researchers seek to learn how to influence and even enhance memory formation. It is hoped this will lead to new treatment methods for disorders that remain virtually untreatable (such as, for instance, Alzheimer's disease).
