PD Dr. med. Martina Minnerop

Neurologist

Head of the group “Clinical Neuroanatomy”

Consultant Neurologist
Institute of Clinical Neuroscience and Medical Psychology /
Center for Movement Disorders and Neuromodulation
Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf

Lecturer at the Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf (Neurology)

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 (e.g. SCA3, SCA14), 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 (e.g. voxel-based/deformationfield morphometry, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, Magnetisation Transfer Imaging)
  • Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
  • Behavioural Measures
  • (semi-) quantitative motion analysis (ultrasound sensors, posturography, scores)
  • Neurological Examinations
