Cerebral circulation and cognition in aging humans
Jurgen Claassen's research group uses various techniques to measure cerebral perfusion, cerebral autoregulation and cognitive activation. These physiological mechanisms play an important role in Alzheimer’s disease, hypertension, and cognitive aging.
Clinical neuroscience in psychiatry
Indira Tendolkar's group focuses the intersection between clinical psychiatry and cognitive neuroscience with a focus on declarative memory. We investigate the adapatation of emotional and neutral memory processes depending on genetic and environmental variablity including somatic challenges.
Neurological movement disorders
Bas Bloem's first research line aims at studying human motor control in health and disease, in particular patients with neurological movement disorders. A second main interest is in health care innovation, aiming to develop and scientifically evaluate patient-centred collaborative care.
Translational genomics of neurodevelopmental disorders
Annette Schenck's research focuses on dissecting molecular networks and mechanisms underlying human brain function and disease. In order to be able to investigate the large number of genes, we use a powerful genetic model organism, the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster.
