We investigate extracellular vesicles (EVs) in neurodegenerative diseases. We are especially interested in EV mediated release of toxic, aggregated proteins, such as a-Synuclein, the determinants of their sorting into EVs and the contribution of their release to toxicity and propagation of disease pathology throughout the brain. We also explore physiological functions of EVs in the […]

It is intriguing how tightly-orchestrated neuronal networks fulfil, what we are appreciating as our mind and what ultimately helps us to define our personality. It is one of our most valuable skills that defines mankind, the ability to create new thoughts and learn from experience. From this it becomes clear that diseases of the central […]

Bach Group

Our mission is to unpack the parallel computing structure of the human mind, how this software architecture is implemented in the brain, and where it fails in mental illness. We bring the mind to its computational limits by putting it in its natural environment, where it needs to cope with survival threats. This requires rapid […]

Jonas Group

The Institut for Digital Medicine works at the intersection between computer science, health sciences, and medicine. We focus on the research of mobile devices in medical and clinical services using novel body sensors, smartphones, and wearable and implantable technology. The ubiquitous availability of mobile devices will change medicine and prevention over the next decades. We will help […]

Reliable integration of an ever-changing multitude of sensory inputs from the environment is the basis for learning and memory and shapes our behaviours. Our research aims to understand how sensory inputs are represented and computed to elucidate key principals of multisensory integration. To address this question, we combine state of the art circuit neuroscience tools […]

Fuhrmann Group

My group aims to understand how neurons and innate immune cells in the brain communicate to lay the foundations for cognition and behaviour. We use neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disease models to identify new disease relevant mechanisms that may serve for the development of novel therapeutic strategies. Cutting edge in vivo imaging technologies like awake head-fixed […]
