Module III
Neuroscience: Basic and Clinical

Prof. Joseph Claßen

Prof. Joseph Classen, chairman of the Dept. of Neurology, University Hospital of Leipzig, is interested in studying the principles of motor control and in the mechanisms of neuronal plasticity and motor learning.

PD Dr Stefan Geyer

Microstructural Analysis of Brain Organization: the Ambitious Goal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Based in Vivo Histology (hMRI)

Prof. Ulrich Hegerl

Prof. Ulrich Hegerl, Director of the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the University of Leipzig, is a specialist in the field biological psychiatry. His research interests include arousal regulation in affective disorders and ADHD, diagnosis and therapy of uni- and bipolar affective disorders, E-health and internet-based self-management of depression, suicide prevention, mild cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Prof. Kai von Klitzing

Our lab conducts research from a developmental psychopathology perspective

Dr Vadim Nikulin

We are interested in understanding functional implications of large-scale spatio-temporal neuronal complexity in the human brain. [more]

Dr Florian Schlagenhauf

The group investigates how alterations in reward processing and basal learning mechanisms contribute to psychiatric conditions such as psychosis and addictive behaviors.

Prof. Peter Schönknecht

Current research of the group aims to investigate neural correlates of affective and cognitive disorders in humans.

Prof. Marc Schoenwiesner

We investigate the how sensory information is encoded in the auditory cortex by performing comparable experiments with high-resolution fMRI in humans and system-level optical imaging in mice.
