Research topic:

Structural and functional organisation of the human brain:
The brain can be divided into areas with different functional tasks. I am studying how strongly these different areas are interconnected to help understanding how the human brain works. Additionally, I am describing the pathways of these fibre bundles and how the microstructure of nerve fibres may change. These insights are used to draw conclusions about the correlation of structural organisation and function in the human brain.

Methodological topics:

  • diffusion weighted MRI
  • tractography
  • analysis of connectivity
  • local models for describing microstructural properties of axon bundles
