Establishing know-how…

How can neuron clusters be affected by stimulation in a mild, efficient and well-defined manner? How can stimulation reshape the neuronal networks so that the neuron clusters permanently return to a healthy mode of function? For a better understanding, we explore the fundamental effects of different stimulation concepts on the dynamics of neuronal networks.

We translate those medical and neurophysiological questions into the language of mathematics and physics. We develop data analysis methods which allow us to perform more detailed studies of these mechanisms in the nervous system. The technological and clinical establishment of stimulation methods leads to new theoretical questions which enable further, deeper insights and the preparation for the therapies of tomorrow.
