We use optical methods to study the brain. Our particular focus is on using optical methods to stimulate and measure neural activity at the mesoscopic scale. We study how groups of neurons…
22. Cognitive Neurophysiology
The hippocampus and entorhinal cortex, which are part of the medial temporal lobe (MTL), support memory and spatial navigation functions. Our research focuses on neural computation underlying…
23. Hearing
We are interested in basic aspects of hearing, from perception to receptor physiology. We explore mechanisms underlying sound detection and discrimination. We are also interested in developing…
24. Pathophysiology of Hearing
The group investigates psychophysical and neurophysiological consequences of altered hearing (for example in case of bilateral or unilateral deafness) in the Mongolian gerbil. Current experiments…
25. Clinical Neurophysiology
Our group investigates the neural mechanisms of perception and evaluation of visual information in healthy volunteers and patients with lesions in the central nervous system that lead to disorders…
26. Physiology of Motor Control
Throughout life, humans acquire precise, complex and flexible motor skills, e.g., when learning to use novel tools. We adjust these skills as the environment or our body changes, for example, when…
27. High frequency activity and behaviour
We are interested in how the brain integrates information at different physiological levels. We investigate whether the brain makes predictions at all and how we manage to create a model of the…
28. Neuropsychiatry
Our research focuses on neurobiological characteristics of affective disorders to identify diagnostic and therapeutic options. We try to shed light on specific aspects and manifestations of the…
29. Imaging Genetics
Human thinking and feeling is individually very variable. Approximately 50 percent of this variability is probably genetically determined and is due in no small part to minimal differences in…
30. Brain Machine Interface
The Brain Machine Interface (BMI) work group focuses on neurophysiological approaches to decode intended movements or other actions from human brain activity (in particular as reflected in the…
31. Synaptic signalling
We are young and international researchers recently appointed as an AG and with the name Neuronal and Synaptic Signals at the LIN in Magdeburg. Our group is formed by PhD and Master Students from…
32. Chemical Synapses
The communication between nerve cells in the brain takes place primarily at specific contact points, the chemical synapses. The release of neurotransmitters on the presynaptic side and their…
33. Functional Genetics of the Synapse
