Multimodal Imaging in Clinical Neuroscience

The working group "Clinical Multimodal Imaging" is primarily concerned with the investigation of individual biomarkers with a view towards using the biomarkers in individually optimised therapy. It is anticipated that the research will help patients with mental illnesses within the framework of the research approach Precision Psychiatry and may be used to predict the success of the therapy.

For this purpose, the research group, led by Prof. Dr. Irene Neuner, uses multimodal imaging, collecting MR, PET and EEG data simultaneously.

Another focus of the group is the successful implementation of simultaneous EEG data collection with MRI at the ultra-high magnetic fields of 7T and 9.4T. The high signal to noise ratio of these field strengths allows connectivity changes to be monitored during therapy in individual treatment cases and paves the way to support practitioners in predicting the efficacy of the given therapeutic approach (7T Mental Health - Precision Psychiatry).

The interdisciplinary group is positioned as a link between key technologies and innovative applications in a clinical setting. As the senior clinician scientist within JARA-BRAIN, Prof. Dr. Irene Neuner represents the bridge between clinical and scientific activities. The group is internationally visible in this function (EU FP7 project TRIMAGE, total volume 6 Mio. €) and the trimodal simultaneous imaging is currently a unique selling point worldwide.
