Functional Neuroanatomy

We are endeavouring to learn more about the pathophysiology of anxiety disorders, depression, ADHD and neurodegenerative disorders and their respective treatment with the help of animal models and human post mortem tissue.

Research focus

  • Molecular mechanisms of emotionality, e.g. epigenetic programming, gene x environment interaction (SFB TRR58 TP A01/A05)
  • Neurobiological basis of behavior with focus on the serotonergic, dopaminergic and glutamatergic system and their influence on learning & memory, attention and impulsivity
  • Neuronal plasticity with focus on the role of adult hippocampal neurogenesis and neuromorphology in various limbic brain regions in animal models of anxiety (SFB TRR58 TP A01), depression and neurodegenerative disorders
