Magnetoencephalography (MEG) provides excellent time resolution within millisecond range and is therefore suitable for non-invasive investigations of fast and transient brain processes. In contrast functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) enables researchers to map brain activations onto structural information at high spatial resolution utilizing different contrast mechanisms. The major focus of the MEG-MR group is to make use of both modalities in order to get a better understanding of how the living brain works.
Therefore, the individual benefit of each system is combined to develop new strategies in data analysis. For example high spatial resolution maps will be used to improve MEG's source localization ability, while the development of a MEG suitable real-time interface enables to explore the spatio-temporal dynamic of the human brain. In combination with neurofeedback techniques, real-time MEG data analysis allows to step into trials of information processing. The application of such novel techniques aims to improve the implementation of novel diagnostic routines and therapy in neurology and psychiatry.

Circadian Rhythms of Attention and Language

The master circadian pacemaker emits signals that trigger organ-specific oscillators and, therefore, constitutes a basic biological process which enables organisms to anticipate daily environmental changes by adjusting behavior, physiology, and gene regulation.
