The Multidimensional Brain
The Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (Neuro-PSI), joint Research Unit of the CNRS and Paris-Sud University, is developing fundamental and interdisciplinary aspects of the organization and functions of the nervous system, based on experimental and theoretical approaches at all scales of analysis. It will form, with its sister Institute NeuroSpin, the NeuroSaclay Center promoting Neuroscience at the highest international standards within the Paris-Saclay University.



Tribute to Karlheinz Meier

Karlheinz was a dear friend, a unique person, a Man of Science that we will always remember, a man of integrity whom we will honor, a man of vision for his physicist and biologist colleagues.
This letter was written on behalf of his friends at UNIC, and all the interdisciplinary PIs and students who participated in this incredible scientific journey under his guidance.
Yves Frégnac Director of UNIC and Biology coordinator of FACETS and BrainScaleS.
