Institute for Neuroscience and Medicine:

Brain and Behaviour (INM-7)

FZ Jülich, Germany


Lab visit description:

The goal of the INM-7 is to obtain a more detailed characterisation of the organisation of the human brain and its inter-individual variability in order to better understand its changes in advanced age as well as neurological and psychiatric disorders. Based on this knowledge, new approaches for diagnosis and outcome prediction at the level of individual patients are developed. We pursue this objective by combining multi-modal MR imaging, detailed neuropsychological characterisation and innovative methods of data analysis and simulation. An important focus of the institute is to provide the developed tools and results to the scientific public in the form of software and data sets enabling the broad use of our research.
