"As a newly minted Leibniz Chair I am excited about the opportunities for collaboration with members of the Institute in Magdeburg. I look forward to interacting with students and colleagues at the Institute in our quest to unravel the neural circuitry of the human mind." (2011)

Prof. Dr. med. Andreas Heinz

"Mechanisms of learning and memory consolidation are of outstanding importance for addiction and mental disorders. As a newly elected Leibniz Chair, I greatly appreciate the possibility for interdisciplinary research on the basic constituents of human behavior." (2011)

Prof. Dr. med. Volker Sturm
Former Director of the Department of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, University Hospital Cologne (until 2012)

"The LIN stands for top-class basic research in animal experiments, including the regulation of memory and motivation. This is an excellent basis for the development of deep brain stimulation procedures for dementia. The close networking of top-level animal, MRI-anatomical and clinical research as well as the integration of the projects into the DFG Collaborative Research Center and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) means that the Magdeburg site offers unparalleled opportunities for transnational research in neuromodulation throughout Europe." (2005)
