Clinical Investigators

Our clnical investigators are in charge of the medical part of the studies. They inform the study participants about the studies, conduct anamnesis interviews, physical examinations, blood and nerve water sampling, skin biopsies and some of the cognitive tests. Due to the presence of a physician during the study-related procedures, medical emergency care of the study participants is always guaranteed.

Our neuropsychologists are trained to thoroughly examine the many aspects of mental performance. For example, memory performance is recorded using different procedures that are carried out according to uniform rules. They help all study participants to achieve the best possible results in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, as this is the only way to ensure that these results reflect their current capabilities.

Study Nurses

The study nurses organize, coordinate and carry out study-related procedures and support the study physicians in e. g. nerve water sampling and skin biopsies. The processing and storage of biomaterial is just as much a part of the range of activities as the documentation of the collected data. The study-related procedures are carried out according to standardized and documented procedures (SOPs).

Technical Assistants

The activities of CTU's technical assistants include the processing and storage of biomaterial as well as neurophysiological investigations. This includes e. g. EEG recordings (up to 128 channels), EEG/fMRI simultaneous measurements e. g. in sleep studies, transcranial electrical brain stimulation as well as the piloting and optimization of examination methods.
