Research Topics:

  • Detection and visualisation of structural and functional changes of neurodegeneration in vivo
  • Linkage between structural CNS changes and neuro(psycho)logical symptoms of neurodegenerative disorders, especially of movement disorders, and aging

In detail:

  • Neurodegeneration in Hereditary and Sporadic Ataxias
    (Spinocerebellar Ataxia, Ataxia with Oculomotor Apraxia Type 1 and 2, Friedreich’s Ataxia, Sporadic Adult Onset Ataxia)
  • Neurodegeneration in Idiopathic and Atypical Parkinsonian Syndromes
    (Multiple System Atrophy, Corticobasal Degeneration, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy)
  • Neurodegeneration of the motor system
    (Aging, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Primary Lateral Sclerosis, Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia)
  • Neurodegeneration in Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 and 2

Research Methods:

  • Morphometric Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
  • Behavioural Measures
  • Neurological Examinations
