Dr. Axmacher with Elisabeth von Stritzky and Tobias Koltun

On 1 September 2014, the DZNE hosted the 19th installment of the “Music & Brain” series at Forschungszentrum caesar, Ludwig-Erhard-Allee 2, in 53175 Bonn.

The event started with a talk by Dr. Nikolai Axmacher, Head of Emmy Noether Group and Head of DZNE Group Bonn, entitled "The fate of a memory trace: how experiences are stored in the brain". The lecture was followed by musical “contrasts“. Elisabetth von Stritzky (soprano) and Tobias Koltun (piano), winners of the International „Cantando-Parlando“ Lied Duo Competioin in 2013 performed a variety of masterpieces for voice and piano.

Dr. Nikolai Axmacher is heading an Emmy Noether research group at the Department of Epileptology of the University of Bonn and a research group at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases in Bonn. He studied Philosophy and Medicine in Berlin and Paris. In his dissertation at the Institute of Physiology of the Humboldt University of Berlin and at the University Paris VI, he investigated cellular mechanisms of synaptic regulation. Since 2004, he is working at the Department of Epileptology in Bonn, where he completed his habilitation in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2009. His research domain is the Cognitive Neuroscience of memory, where he aims to understand complex human memory processes and their disturbance on a mechanistic level.    

The current repertoire of Elisabeth von Stritzky and Tobias Koltun reflects their individual as well as joint inspiration by highly acclaimed teachers at the Cologne Academy of Music and Dance as well as in international masterclasses; to name a few: Christoph Prégardien, Vassily Lobanov, Graham Johnson and Micheal Hampe. Winners of international competitions, they have performed at renowned festivals and venues like Schwetzingen, Bayreuth and Cologne Philharmonie.
