  • Researchers at the Cognitive Neuroscience department of the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM-3) investigate the neural mechanisms underlying motor and cognitive (dys-)function in healthy subjects and patients suffering from neurological and psychiatric disorders. Our scientific mission is to further the understanding of stroke-induced disturbances in brain networks and the development of novel brain stimulation approaches to promote recovery of function. To achieve this, we combine neuroimaging (structural/functional MRI, electroencephalography) and computational neuroscience with technical interventions (TMS) that allow us to enhance neural plasticity and neurorehabilitation.
