Dr. rer. nat. Esther KühnMy research group has the vision to understand how cortical microstructure links to human behavior in health and disease. Ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging at 7 Tesla allows visualizing and investigating the human brain in unprecedented detail. My research group investigates sub-milimeter changes in cortical myelin, cortical iron, functional activation, and functional connectivity in older adults and people with neurodegenerative as well as mental diseases together with measures of everyday life phenotypes to understand the neuronal mechanisms that underlie healthy and pathological microstructural mechanisms.
