SFB 1436 Neural Resources of Cognition
The innovative research program of the CRC deals with the fundamental question of what are the neurobiological principles that constitute and limit neural resources of cognition and constrain the potential to fully utilize or to even increase these resources. Using intervention-based research projects in humans and animal models, we aim to understand individual variability, including aging and superaging, and transferrable enhancement of cognitive functions. We will consider important modifiers such as tau- and amyloid-pathology, sleep deprivation and vascular reserve. We will utilize a wide range of cutting-edge and unique imaging technologies.
