The service performances of the IT Service (special laboratory informatics until 2012) are substantially determined by functions of computer networking and thus the installation and administration of hard and software components of the local area network of the LIN (ifNet).
The scientific interest of the IT Service is in Neuroinformatics. Informatics is the European term for computer sciences and Neuroinformatics is a field at the crossroads between the neurosciences, the computer sciences and the cognitive sciences.
The neural networks developed for tasks in bionics, cybernetics and artificial intelligence are simplified models of real neural structures. Furthermore a main field in Neuroinformatics is the modeling and simulation of neural behaviour, information processing of neurons and small neural structures.
