For each of the Deutsche Neurowissenschaften-Olympiade events, all questions are in English. We provide study materials to help you prepare for the even, which are derived from two sources:
  1. The Neuroscience of the Brain, a booklet published by the International Brain Research Organization and available for free download by clicking here for the full version in English (German translation, for reference use only).
  2. The second resource, the 2017 Official Study Guide, is compiled and published by the Deutsche Neurowissenschaften-Olympiade e.V. This free downloadable study guide is password protected and only made accessible to our competition participants. Inside this official study guide, additional information on which brain structures are included in the Neuroanatomy Section of the event (along with diagrams of each structure), which neurological diseases are included in the Patient Diagnosis Section (along with information about each disease), and other helpful tips for preparing for the competition can be found.


An updated version of our study guide will be made available to competition participants in January 2018.
