Spotlight: Neuroscience History in Berlin
Berlin, the German capital, is shaped by history. Separated by a wall for decades and reunified in 1989, it today has a multicultural and international atmosphere. But not only world history has shaped Berlin, it was and still is a hotspot of medical history. In 2010, the Charité, Berlin’s university hospital and medical school celebrated its 300 birthday. Names like Hermann von Helmholtz, Rudolf Virchow, or Cécile and Oscar Vogt have been pioneers of modern neuroscience.
