We are an interdisciplinary group of scientists studying how the human brain supports its functions. Within this framework we are particularly curious in the interplay of 'nature' and 'nurture' on brain structure, and what this means for human cognition. We aim for our research to provide meaningful insights into the biological basis of human thought.
We are based at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig and INM-7, Forschungszentrum Jülich in Jülich, both in Germany. We are part of Helmholz International Bigbrain analytics & learning laboratory set up by Forschungszentrum Jülich and Montreal Neurological Institute, Montreal, Canada.
