Welcome to the homepage of the Institute of Systems Neuroscience
Our long-term goal is to obtain a more detailed characterization of the organisation of the human brain and its inter-individual variability in order to improve our understanding of 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-modular MRT imaging, detailed neuropsychological characterization and innovative methods of data analysis and simulation. Thereby, an important focus of our 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.
