Cognitive Neuropsychiatry

Cognitive Neuropsychiatry offers an exciting view on brain and behaviour dynamics in health and disease. We aim to understand human behaviour using advanced structural and functional MRI methods, combined with precision phenotyping of human traits and genetics.

Our methods range from MRI morphometry, including surface-based cortical mapping, analyses of cortical gyrification and cortical complexity, as well as machine-learning based structural analysis of accelerated aging, over diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), which allows us to map variations in white matter integrity, to functional MRI (incl. task-based experiments, resting-state studies, and measurements of regional cerebral blood flow, rCBF).

Network analyses of functional connectivity, as well as structural network and symptom networks help us to generate both structural as well as dynamic representations of brain functioning.
