Sections and working groups

Section for Addiction Medicine and Addiction Research

Exploring addictions and behavioral addictions.

Section for Dementia Research

Development of innovative diagnostic instruments for the early detection of cognitive disorders.

Working groups

The Affective Neuropsychiatry Group investigates the neurobiological basis of emotional processes in healthy subjects and in patients with disturbed emotion processing (e.g. depression, schizophrenia, anxiety disorder).

To the research group

The research group PAS - Psychotherapy Research in Affective Disorders investigates the effectiveness and efficacy factors of psychotherapy in depressive and anxiety disorders. Currently, the effectiveness and efficacy factors of hypnotherapy are being investigated in particular.

To the working group

The Applied Neurotechnology Group is an interface between the Institute of Medical Psychology and Behavioral Neurobiology, the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy and the MEG Center.

To the working group

The Anxiety Research Group is concerned with all types of anxiety, both in the clinical and in the normal psychological field. The underlying neurobiological processes are primarily investigated using neuroscientific methods.

To the working group

The research projects of the Dementia Research Group focus on the examination of patients with mild cognitive disorders and dementia using neuropsychological and imaging methods (cooperation with the Section for Experimental Magnetic Resonance of the CNS, Department of Neuroradiology of the Department of Radiology, University Hospital Tübingen). Test procedures were developed and evaluated, and their basic principles and neuronal correlates were investigated. These projects will be continued and deepened.

About the working group

Our research group focuses on affective responses in behavior and brain with particular reference to gender, mental health and illness, and in relation to hormonal balance.

To the research group

The Cognitive Neuropsychiatry Group is concerned with the neural correlates of psychopathological symptoms. Using methods of modern functional and structural imaging, we also deal with the correlates of language, humor, ego-consciousness and memory in healthy individuals.

To the research group

The Molecular Psychiatry Group investigates the genetic and epigenetic basis of psychiatric diseases. Psychiatric disorders are complex diseases to which various genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors contribute. By investigating the biological basis of these diseases, we aim to better understand the development and course of mental illnesses and thus contribute to the development of more efficient therapy and prevention.

To the research group

The research group "Neurobiology of Cognition" (short "NoCo-Lab" = "Neurobiology of Cognition" Laboratory) investigates the neurobiological basis of cognitive performance and its alteration by aging and by psychiatric and neurological diseases.

To the research group

The Neurophysiology & Interventional Neuropsychiatry group is concerned with procedures for electromagnetic stimulation of the human brain such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), deep brain stimulation (DBS), electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). These methods are becoming increasingly important in psychiatric research and clinical practice.

To the working group

The Neuroplasticity and Learning group investigates how learning processes lead to neuroplastic changes in the brain and how these learning processes can be improved in psychiatric and neurological disorders by non-invasive brain stimulation methods.

About the research group

In the NeurotechnologyandComputationalPsychiatry group, high-dimensional data sets from brain imaging, genetics, and symptomatology are analyzed.

To the research group

The research group investigates the response of mental illnesses to psychopharmacological drugs and psychotherapy. The aim is to better understand the improvement of mental illnesses and to be able to select the optimal therapeutic approaches even more precisely in the future. This is the approach of precision medicine.

To the working group

The Psychophysiology & Optical Imaging group focuses on the measurement of brain function and peripheral physiological variables (e.g. skin conductance) in psychiatric patients (e.g. schizophrenia, affective disorders, anxiety disorders, ADHD, dementia) and healthy controls.

About the research group

The Psychotherapy Research Group is concerned with the efficacy and mode of action of psychotherapy for severe mental disorders, particularly psychosis.

To the working group

Our research centres

Center for Brain Stimulation (ZfH)

Treatment of depression with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

Computational Psychiatry

Examines the relationship of mental health to brain structure and function, as well as underlying genetics.

Laboratories

Laboratories

Psychological test laboratory

The psychological test laboratory primarily uses neuropsychological examination procedures that can contribute to psychiatric diagnostics and treatment planning. The psychological-diagnostic examination is planned, assessed and evaluated by qualified psychologists.

Neurochemical Biomarkers

The research group Neurochemical Biomarkers is concerned with the development of accurate and reliable bioassays that allow the determination of relevant proteins from peripheral blood. First results indicate the possibility to establish effective biomarkers from serum or plasma for the early and differential diagnosis of Alzheimer's dementia in the next years.
