Neurology (» Postal address)
As a PhD student and scientific staff member of the University Clinic for Neurology at the University of Oldenburg, I am working on functional brain connectivity analyses. I use neuroimaging data from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate how the interplay of different brain regions changes due to disease (Parkinson's disease and writer's cramp).

The human brain consists of different functional areas that are responsible for different tasks. However, it is becomming more and more obvious that these areas are not totally independent. Instead, their interplay is often necessary.
This interplay can, however, be disrupted due to brain disorders. I am investigating how the conectivity of brain regions changes in patients with writer's cramp and patients with Parkinson's disease.
