Summer School

Participants' Feedback

"The 4th IMPRS Summer School in London offered a varied programme including inspiring talks from senior scientists, as well as interactive sessions in which students could test their scientific skills and learn, for example, how to communicate scientific results to the public."

Anna-Lena Lumma
Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, Germany

"NeuroCom gave me a unique opportunity to share ideas and have strong feedback for my research. As in many other aspects of life, a good design predicts quality, and at this event the interesting talks with a variety of domains led by experienced neuroscientists, a useful poster session and the location created a learning atmosphere for all of us."

Freddy Linares-Torres
Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Lima, Peru

"The IMPRS SummerSchool was a great and memorable event for me! In the lectures one could get a good overview, and in some parts quite specific knowledge, of several neuroscientific research areas. Above all, the breaks and poster sessions created an ideal setting to get in touch with other young researchers, which led to interesting exchanges about individual experiences. And not to forget - the food was great!"

Susann Ullrich
Cluster "Languages of Emotion", Free University Berlin, Germany

"The 3rd IMPRS NeuroCom Summer School gave me the unique opportunity to exchange my personal knowledge and curiosity with other participants. Speaking to, studying with, and getting to know new enthusiastic young students has allowed us to develop our interests and increase our love of neurosciences, thus linking our neurons together!"

Elia Zanin
Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, Milan, Italy

"I enjoyed listening to talks from prominent researchers in the field. It was also great to present my poster in a more relaxed environment and to meet other students with a wide variety of research interests. The atmosphere was really informal and I definitely hope to attend again!"

Yulia Revina
Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, University of Glasgow, UK

"I am still pleasantly surprised by the experience I gained by participating in the initiative at the Max Planck Institute. It was especially pleasing to talk about the ongoing research in Neuroscience and to have the opportunity to access so many resources. Thank you for giving me this opportunity, for the reception, and everything that was made available to all participants."

Graziosa Luppi
Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, Milan, Italy

"The summer school was a very good opportunity to meet people from all over the world who are working on the same or similar projects. There were poster sessions, interesting talks and also some free time to get to know people and exchange thoughts."

David Hrabal

University of Ulm, Medical Psychology, Ulm, Germany

"The most exciting neuroscientific event I have ever attended! Top professors, students from all over the world, interactive workshops and guided sightseeing tours: it’s really the best way to fire your synapses!"

Stefano Sandrone

Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, Milan, Italy

"A perfectly organized summer school highlighting multimodal approaches in neuroscience by offering interesting lectures and valuable hands-on seminars."

Nurit Ezra

Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel

"The Summer School was a great opportunity to get in touch with young scientists and established researchers and informally discuss one’s own findings and common problems."

Julian Keil

University of Konstanz, Department of Psychology, OBOB-Lab, Germany

"The summer school was great: the chance to learn from some of the world's finest researchers and plenty of time to meet and interact with fellow researchers from all over. Incredibly worth it!"

Austin Bennett

Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, USA

"A great chance to meet passionate postgraduate fellows and an impressive mix of stunning young and senior neuroscientists, all in a friendly atmosphere."

Emanuele De Luca

University of Glasgow, Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, UK

"The summer school in Leipzig was very inspiring. We had this rare opportunity to listen about Multimodal Approaches in Neuroscience from world top scientists, and it was free of charge! I would love to re-experience this stimulating, very well organized and pleasant atmosphere next year in London.

Antonija Maricic

Croatian Studies, University of Zagreb, Croatia

"The 2010 summer school featured engaging speakers and, as a whole, enriched my understanding of various brain imaging techniques and their applications in the study of language and cognition."

Bridgette DeCot

University of Bielefeld, Bielefeld, Germany

"I really enjoyed the multimodal summer school in Leipzig for several reasons. Firstly, a large number of talks were given by the preeminent scientists in their fields and it was a extraordinary occasion to hear them. Secondly, the variety of domains covered by the talks enabled one not only to enrich the understanding into areas that one had a prior background or knowledge of, but also to gain an insight to cutting edge research fields. Thirdly, the small poster sessions (comparing to conferences like SFN) evoked an opportunity to have more detailed discussions with the poster authors. Finally, the social events and the organization was really outstanding."

Vadim Axelrod

Tel-Aviv, Tel-Aviv University, Israel

"The Summer School in Leipzig was a great opportunity to have interesting discussions with outstanding senior scientists and PhD students from all over the world!"

Tanja Kassuba

Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance, Copenhagen University Hospital, Hvidovre, Denmark

"I was very impressed by the high level equipment at the Max Plank Neuroscience Institute, Leipzig. I would like to say Huge Thanks to the coordinator of Summer School, Dr. Antje Holländer. Everything was perfect, especially lectures and subject poster sessions. German punctuality, responsibility and order were the key of the last Summer school of Neuroscience in Leipzig."

Tsymbal Vitaliy

Vinnitsa National Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Vinnitsa, Ukraine

"Between posters, talks and SPM anatomy, the primary value of the Summer School in Leipzig, to me, was in making it clear what multimodal approaches are all about […]. people were highly motivated."

Carlos Andrés Mugruza Vassallo

University of Dundee, Dundee, UK

"It was a great pleasure to attend the International Summer School on Multimodal Approaches in Neuroscience. The attendees gained a valuable insight into a wide range of most current theories and state-of-the-art methodologies practised in neuroscientific research today. The whole event was organised impeccably and the speakers were very friendly and always open to discussion. I am looking forward to attending the Summer School 2011 in London!"

Vedran Galetić

The Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Doctoral Study Programme "Language and Cognitive Neuroscience", University of Zagreb, Croatia

"Attending the International Summer School on Multimodal Approaches in Neuroscience in July 2010 provided me with useful and diverse information about aspects of brain and language research. It has had reverberations for my research that are still echoing. As a novice to the field, I got a solid grounding in the neurolinguistic research paradigms and methods, while seeing the areas that are still being worked out."
