Translational Imaging of Cortical Microstructure

Prof. Dr. Esther Kühn

Areas of investigation/research focus

We use translational high and ultra-high field MR imaging to understand how cortical microstructure links to human brain function and behavior in health and disease. 

We study healthy younger adults, older adults, people with neurodegenerative and neurological diseases, and people with mental disorders to understand the neuronal mechanisms that underlie healthy and pathological cortex architecture and its modification. We focus on the architecture of the sensorimotor system and associated networks, affected for example in ALS, during aging, in MS, in PD, during somatic pain, and in associated conditions.
