Brain Microcircuits in Psychiatric Diseases

Successful treatment of psychiatric diseases remains a major challenge. We explore the contribution of non-neuronal cells to the dysfunction of brain microcircuits underlying mental disorders to provide new, personalized therapies.

Early Intervention in Psychiatric Diseases

Schizophrenia as being a neurodevelopmental disorder, shows aberrations not only in structure, wiring and chemistry of multiple neuronal systems but also in myelination. The team is interested in deciphering the causes of this so far untapped pathology occurring due to myelination deficits.
