Laurenz Lammer

MD student (in cooperation with Leipzig University)

Main Focus

  • I am interested in the application of concepts from social epidemiology to the study of neurological diseases.
  • My research focuses on social isolation as a potentially modifiable risk factor for cognitive decline and dementia.
  • I am intrigued by the challenges and opportunities of the use of Bayesian statistics for Neuroscience and Epidemiology.
  • Moreover, I am interested in the practical implementation of concepts from philosophy of science and medicine to improve research practices.
  • Current projects:
    • Discerning appropriate public health strategies for tackling loneliness and social isolation to protect mental and cognitive health using GAMMs (generalized additive mixed models)
    • Implementing a structured assessment of loneliness and social isolation in the Day Clinic for Cognitive Neurology at the University of Leipzig Medical Center
