Surname, First name Research Focus
Baier, Herwig The goal of our research is to understand how neuronal circuits convert sensory inputs into behavioral responses...
Bonhoeffer, Tobias In the Bonhoeffer lab, Amgen scholars can get an insight on electrophysiology combined with molecular tools, genetic techniques and optical approaches like two-photon calcium-imaging and time-lapse microscopy...
Brandt, Thomas In the Institute of Clinical Neurosciences, studies address vestibular function in health and disease from eye movement recordings to perception using various methods such as psychophysical measurements, eye movement recordings, fMRI and computational modeling...
Ertürk, Ali A fundamental challenge in modern science is to understand how the brain functions in health and disease. Despite growing incidences of neurodegenerative diseases, we still lack basic understanding of ...
Glasauer, Stefan In the Department for Clinical Neurosciences, studies address vestibular function in health and disease from eye movement recordings to perception using various methods such as psychophysical measurements, eye movement recordings, fMRI, and computational modeling...
Gogolla, Nadine Our lab explores the development and plasticity of a neuronal network comprising prefrontal and limbic brain circuits, with a particular focus on the insular cortex...
Gompel, Nicolas A stricking feature of animal evolution is the diversity of their forms and behaviors. The evolution of traits entails changes in the genetic make-up of each species...
Grunwald Kadow, Ilona The lab is interested in the genetic program that controls the formation of olfactory neuronal circuits...
Herms, Jochen The Herms' lab focuses on cellular neurobiology, clinical neuroscience, functional imaging, and developmental neurobiology...
Herz, Andreas The group of Prof. Herz uses methods from nonlinear dynamics and probability theory to analyze and model electrophysiological data, which is partly recorded in his own lab (and partly by collaborators) to compare them with theoretical predictions...
Klein, Rüdiger Research projects for Amgen Scholars would be embedded in ongoing research on the development of the vertebrate nervous system...
Kopp-Scheinpflug, Conny The objective of this project is to understand how loud sound can influence auditory processing and in particular, temporal integration of acoustic stimuli...
Kunz, Lars We are interested in establishing optical techniques that will allow the control of neuronal excitability by light...
Leibold, Christian Prof. Leibold's lab works on models and theoretical analyses of small neural circuits...
Lopez-Schier, Hernán We have recently expanded our project to investigate the mechanical and biophysical mechanisms that govern the development and regeneration of epithelial architecture...
Misgeld, Thomas The Misgeld lab uses in vivo imaging methods (ranging from wide-field time-lapse to two-photon microscopy) to study the development and degeneration of neurons and their processes...
Myoga, Michael H.
Ninkovic, Jovica Our research aims to elucidate the key mechanisms of neurogenesis in the developing and adult brain...
Plesnila, Nikolaus The Laboratory of Experimental Stroke Research (LaESR) is devoted to uncover the pathophysiology of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke as the basis for the development of novel therapeutic options for stroke patients...
Ploner, Markus On a systems neuroscience level we are working on the brain mechanisms of pain perception...
Portugues, Ruben My group is interested in how brains process sensory stimuli and use them to select appropriate motor output...
Schmidt, Mathias V. Stress-associated diseases, with depression leading the way, affect the quality of life of more than a billion people world-wide...
Sirota, Anton Our research is focused on the mechanisms of information representation and propagation within and across different cortical networks. Specifically, we are exploring the neurophysiological mechanisms of...
Straka, Hans Compensatory eye movements are indispensable for image stabilization during self-motion...
Touma, Chadi Our focus is to generate and characterise clinically relevant animal models of inborn (trait) emotionality and stress reactivity in order to elucidate neurobiological, endocrine and molecular-genetic mechanisms underlying affective disorders such as major depression...
Wiegrebe, Lutz The Wiegrebe lab offers the following research opportunities to Amgen Scholars...
Wullimann, Mario Dr. Wullimann's research focuses on brain development in zebrafish and comparative neuroanatomy...
