Research Objectives

Short- and medium-term research objectives for neurosciences:

  1. Continuation and expansion of the structural and functional MRT examinations on neuronal plasticity and functional repair/compensation within the framework of the development with expansion to the areas of learning, training cognitive and emotional processes as well as competence maintenance in age and in sick brain processes.
  2. Accompanying establishment of a brain database through quantitative morphometry by developing and using new quantitative MR morphometrical measurement and analysis methods. Display of functional networks in healthy test persons, for instance in the so-called resting state (over the life cycle) and in comparison with sick cerebral processes.
  3. Development and evaluation of new rehabilitation techniques based on EEG and fNIRS, in order to treat optimally cognitive and motoric deficits after neurological damage and improving the treatment result.
  4. Examination of pathogenic mechanisms, which are causally involved in neurologically psychiatric diseases, through translational research on the animal model using genetic, neurophysiological, behavioural and image-providing methods, which have been or are being developed at the three universities in a complementary way and should ultimately open up new pharmacological treatment strategies.
