Our projects

Our Collaborative Research Center (CRC) includes 22 subprojects that contribute to four project areas with different focal points.

Research area A investigates the molecular and cellular determinants of neural resources, through the exploration of synaptic connections and small neural networks at the microscopic level. Research area B focuses on neural resources at the mesoscopic level, i.e., through the connectivity across brain areas. Research area C is dedicated to the macroscopic level and investigates, for example, how neural resources are assigned to tasks. The service projects (Z) support all subprojects with specialized methodology and know-how – from microscopic visualization of active synapses to tau imaging in “super agers”.
