Working Groups of Department Neurology

Research in the department of neurology focuses on risk factors leading to stroke and functional recovery after stroke as well as underlying mechanisms.

As illustrated in the figure the groups can be roughly allocated to the three main research areas "risk factors", "recovery", and "mechanisms". Click on a group to see more details at their website.


Below all groups at the department are listed. Please note that – beside Max Planck Society and University Hospital Leipzig - many of these groups are funded by “third parties”, i.e., external grants.

The main institutions involved are the Department of Neurology at MPI (MPI-N) and the Day Clinic for Cognitive Neurology at University Hospital Leipzig (Cog-N), furthermore the MPIs satellite lab at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain (MB). The main partner institutions and cooperative center grants are the IFB AdiposityDiseases, SFB mechanisms of adiposity, Leipzig Research Center for Civilization Diseases (LIFE), Excellence Cluster NeuroCure, Neuroradiology at Center for Stroke Research Berlin (CSB), the Innovation Center Computer Assisted Surgery (ICCAS), and several Max Planck Research Schools (LIFE at MPI for Human Development, MaxNet Aging at MPI for Demographic Research, and NeuroCom at MPI for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences).

The main external funding agencies are the Germany ministry or research (BMBF) and the German funding agency (DFG).
