Module III
Basic and Clinical Neuroscience

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.

Dr Falk Eippert

Our group aims to uncover the neural mechanisms that underlie human pain perception and its cognitive modulation.

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]

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.

Dr Veronica Witte

Aims of our lab are (a) to determine autonomic and cognitive control mechanisms that regulate food intake, (b) to identify metabolic factors that impact the brain due to overeating and obesity or alternative eating habits, and (c) to test if interventions that target these pathways could improve brain function.
