Science Publication: “Self-Organization – Is That How You Build a Brain?”

An interdisciplinary research team involving neurobiologists and mathematicians at Freie Universität Berlin set out to investigate, both biologically and mathematically, the fundamental mechanisms that determine neuronal wiring. Their results have recently been published in “Science.” They showed that “neural superposition wiring” is determined through self-organization.
