Cognitive Neuroscience (INM-3)

From an understanding of cognitive processes to the development of new treatment strategies for neurological deficits.

Cognitive Neuroscience (INM-3)

Using behavioural, pharmacological, and neuromodulatory methods, we investigate the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive (dys-)function in healthy subjects and patients suffering from neurological disorders.

Headed by: Prof. Dr. Gereon R. Fink


Functional imaging (PET, MRI) and electrophysiological methods (EEG, TMS, tDCS) are combined with computational approaches to achieve a better understanding of i) the development of normal brain functions during ageing, ii) disease-induced dysfunction, and iii) cerebral plasticity and recovery of function.

Results help to decode how the human brain enables higher cognition and to develop novel therapeutic approaches.
