Connectivity & Network Activity

Neuronal activity, brain function and finally behavior emerge from the multi-scale organization of the human connectome. Correspondingly, the activity dynamics is governed by the interaction of multiple scales. Bridging the scales and relating anatomical and activity data is the major challenge addressed using electron microscopy, 3D polarized light imaging (3D-PLI), electrophysiological and MRI measurements, in combination with modeling and simulation.

(Dys-)Function & Plasticity

Functional imaging (PET, MRI, EEG & MEG) is used to characterize the neural networks underlying cerebral dysfunction and recovery thereof in patients suffering from neurological and psychiatric diseases. This approach is complemented by theoretical work to develop neurobiologically informed, hypothesis-driven novel therapeutic approaches.

Bild zum Topic Neuroimaging


Development, experimental validation and clinical implementation of novel brain imaging methods, and development of new radionuclides as well as radiotracers for the use in life science (medicine/biology) are in the focus of our activity. Hybrid MR-PET scanners provide unique insights into the structure and the mechanisms of the human brain.

Theory, Modeling and Simulation

The steadily growing amounts of neuroscience data require new tools to abstract and integrate these data into multi-scale, multi-modal brain models. Simulation and visualization are needed for hypothesis-driven and explorative virtual investigations. Theory strives to explain the mechanisms underlying the observed phenomena.
