Cognitive Neurology Lab Berlin

The Cognitive Neurology Lab Berlin is affiliated with the Department of Neurology at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain. We are part of the CRC 1315 “Memory Consolidation” and are associated with the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin and the Berlin Center for Advanced Neuroimaging.

Our research focuses on cognitive deficits in neurological disorders: We aim to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cognitive deficits and we study patients with focal lesions or distinct network changes to learn about the principal organization and function of the healthy human brain. We have a specific interest in neuroimmunological disorders, such as autoimmune encephalitis, multiple sclerosis and neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, but we also study patients with developmental, vascular and neurodegenerative disorders. We use a broad range of research methods, including structural and functional MRI, comprehensive neuropsychological assessments and immersive virtual reality setups.
