Dr. Wenzel Glanz
Wenzel Glanz trained as a neurologist in Magdeburg, Germany. He works as a senior physician in the memory clinic, which is established as a cooperation between the Magdeburg site of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE, Helmholtz Society) and the University Clinic for Neurology Magdeburg. As part of this activity, the focus is not only on patient care, but also on the recruitment of subjects for studies and the supervision of the studies as a study doctor also for the SFB 1436, especially the Z03 project. Wenzel Glanz provides advice on clinical aspects in the development of study designs.
Dr. Enise I. Incesoy
Enise Incesoy is a clinician scientist at the IKND as part of Z03 subproject. After graduating from the Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine in Ankara, Turkey, she worked first as a guest scientist at the MPI for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, and then in the memory clinic at Charité in Berlin, both as a medical doctor and research assistant. Her interest in self-awareness, its loss in psychiatric diseases, and its neural correlates in the brain allowed her to create her project related to Alzheimer’s disease for her (german) doctoral dissertation. This project, through applying neuroimaging methods, also facilitated her collaboration with DZNE Magdeburg. Since November 2020 she has been working at IKND/DZNE as well as at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy in the University Clinic Magdeburg as a psychiatric trainee. Currently, her work is focused on awareness changes in the Alzheimer’s continuum, applying both subjective (in a trialogue) and objective (metacognition-confidence rating) methods, and using rsfMRI connectivity analysis. Moreover, she’s seeing patients as well as holding responsibilities as a study doctor at the memory clinic and at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy. She has a continued academic interest in (micro-)phenomenology and aims to study remembering, recalling, and forgetting in the elderly individual through the methodological study of subjective experience.
