Oskar and Cécile Vogt were early pioneers in mapping the brain. In the six decades of their work, they made significant contributions to the understanding of brain organisation and the development of brain research as a science. The C. u. O. Vogt Archive contains the extensive legacy of the research couple.
To mark the start of the digital indexing of the archive, Institute Director Prof. Katrin Amunts hosts a reception in the new building in Düsseldorf's Himmelgeisterstraße. Invitations are extended to the staff of the C. u. O. Vogt Institute, representatives of the Faculty of Medicine and the Institute for the History of Science of Medicine, as well as the Society of Friends and Sponsors of the HHU, and the members of the Board of Trustees and donors of the Cécile and Oskar Vogt Foundation.
The Cécile and Oskar Vogt Institute for Brain Research at UKD and HHU is in the tradition of the research conducted by the Vogts and deals with the question of the fundamental organisational principles and functions of the human brain, in particular the cerebral cortex and its dependence on various internal and external influences.
