The “Mind-Body-Emotion” Group of the Neurology Department investigates the interaction of the brain and the rest of the body during emotional processing – with a special focus on potential modulators of cardio- and cerebrovascular health. For the ongoing “Leipzig Cohort for Mind-Body-Emotion Interactions” (LEMON), healthy participants are psychometrically characterized with respect to cognitive capacities and emotional or stress reactivity. In task-free (i.e., resting-state) and task-based measurements, the central nervous system of participants is comprehensively assessed using functional and structural neuroimaging (DWI, f/MRI, EEG). At the same time, activity in the autonomic nervous system is recorded (electrocardiogram and pulse, respiration, blood pressure) and endocrine markers in blood and hair are analysed. LEMON thereby comprises a joint protocol on which individual projects on diverse aspects of emotional processing build in a modular fashion. Data openly shared and published here.
