Long Night of Science 2019

Get to know your brain states and control them audiovisually to dream scenarios. Learn more about the BeLOVE study or the digital revolution in healthcare. And become a biobanker at the coldest place of the Charité for one night.

For the third time, BIH and Charité are participating in the Long Night of Science in Berlin. The Clinical Research Unit (CRU), Central Biobank (ZeBanC) at the Charité as well as the BIH research groups Brain Simulation and Digital Health will participate with a total of seven workshops, guided tours and lectures at the locations of the Charité at Campus Benjamin Franklin, Campus Charité Mitte and Campus Virchow-Klinikum.

Fenster der Wissenschaft

Lecture | The Virtual Brain
The virtual brain is a platform that allows the function of the brain of healthy people and patients to be simulated on the computer. This makes it possible to test surgical procedures and other interventions on the virtual patient brain.

Workshop | My Virtual Dream: Controlling brain states
Get to know your brain states and control them in collective neurofeedback! My Virtual Dream is a kind of collective brain-controlled computer game. Using brain-computer interfaces, your brain signals are measured and presented audiovisually as dream scenarios.

Lichthof

Info Booth | BrainModes – personalized Neurofeedback
BrainModes is an application for smart devices that can visualize your brain activity. With BrainModes you can control games with your brain signals and train your brain.

Campus Benjamin Franklin

Zentraler Infostand

Workshop | Experience clinical research up close - the focus is on the patient
Experience how clinical research works with the BeLOVE capital study. You will have the opportunity to undergo various studies that will be carried out as part of the study. How fit are you? What does your heart look like in an ultrasound image? And what does research mean for scientists and patients?

Times: 5:00, 6:30, 8:00, 9:30 pm (45 min. each)
