We want our research to have an impact. That is why we aim to make our research results useful for society as a whole, shaping our own work based on social impetus. We attach great importance to close cooperation with outside research partners and partners from industry so that our findings can be applied to improve people's lives in the long term.
MEDICAL IMAGING PHYSICS (INM-4)
The research and development activities of our research groups in 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.

18th May 2023 - Using whole-brain laminar fMRI to investigate new dimensions of the human neocortex
This research builds on a novel fMRI technique that combines echo-planar-imaging with keyhole (EPIK) with repetition-time-external (TR-external) EPI phase correction to provide a spatial resolution as high as half-millimetre in-plane (0.51 × 0.51 × 1.00 mm3 (0.26 mm3 voxel)) or 0.63 mm isotropic (i.e. in all voxel dimensions) with whole-cerebrum coverage.
