Congratulations to Annika Schult and Matthias Raschick from the Department of Behavioral Neurology. The M.D. students received doctoral scholarships from the Medical Faculty of the OVGU Magdeburg. The scholarship allows the two young scientists to fully dedicate themselves to their doctoral thesis at LIN.
Annika and Matthias are interested in the influence of factors such as age or trauma experiences on human cognitive performance. They test subjects in memory tasks and search, for example, for immunological parameters in the blood as indicators of cognitive processes in ageing people and for genetic factors related to the influence of trauma.
