The research and development activities of the Medical Imaging Physics division (INM-4) of the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine focus on the development, experimental validation and the clinical implementation of novel brain imaging methods.
The goal of INM-7 (Brain & Behaviour) is to develop a better understanding of the organizational principles of the human brain, to model or predict inter-individual differences using innovative machine learning approaches, and ultimately to develop new approaches for individual diagnosis and prognosis in neurological or psychiatric patients.
JARA Institute Brain structure-function relationships (INM-10)
INM-10 develops comprehensive models of brain functions and dysfunctions also with relevance to psychiatric diseases. Here, it is important for us to understand and model the functionally relevant spatial and temporal scales in the brain experimentally. For successful integration of the scales, we explore methods of digitization and quality assurance of scientific workflows.
JARA Institute Molecular neuroscience and neuroimaging (INM-11)
INM-11 is a JARA institute in collaboration with RWTH Aachen University. The institute develops translational scientific approaches to enable individualized biologically based early diagnosis and prognosis assessment of neuropsychiatric and neurological diseases, across the entire life-span. New imaging methods, computational analyses and novel therapeutic molecules are used to conduct clinical trials with the goal of causally intervening in disease processes to develop more effective long-term treatment and prevention approaches.
