Research Interests

Getting a deeper understanding of how the human brain is wired - and altered in pathological conditions, especially affective and neurodegenerative disorders.
As humans and patients differ in a rather uncontrollable manner, my approach is from a preclinical perspective utilizing animal models.

Focus: Functional MRI readouts and long term diffusion MRI effects of specific and direct neuronal stimulation.

Other Research Interests:
- Translational animal models of neurological disorders
- Prenatal Stress, Depression and Anxiety/Fear
- Sleep Studies
- Electrophysiology (EEG, ECoG and EMG) and Immunohistochemistry (IHC).

Research Groups

Microstructure and Plasticity Group
