Human Neuroimaging

The interdisciplinary research area Human Neuroimaging uses Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to understand how brain microstructure links to human brain function in health and disease.

Central topics of the research area are:

  • Cognitive Neuroscience, Neuropsychology and Neurobiology
  • High- and Ultra-High Field MR-Imaging
  • In-Vivo Histology and Microstructural Imaging
  • Computation Modeling
  • Sensory and Motor Systems
  • Spatial Orientation and Memory
  • Translational Research (Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Epilepsy, Trauma Disorders, Somatic Disorders)

The research area combines human neuroimaging with animal experimental and AI methods.
