Former directors and group leaders

The Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology has a long tradtition of high quality research. Complying with the Max Planck concept of promoting excellency, this research is consolidated in departments and Independent Research Groups. The list below details the leaders, dates and names of former groups and departments, beginning in 1984 when the institute moved to the Campus Martinsried.
