Andreas is interested in connectivity and causality in the brain, the human connectome and its structure-function relationship. As a clinical case of connectomics, he studies effects of deep brain stimulation on aberrant circuitries that lead to movement disorders. Both interests are often realized by furthering development of the Lead-DBS toolbox.
Ningfei is a core developer of Lead-DBS with a computer science background. He focuses on connectomic deep brain stimulation analyses in the fields of Parkinson’s Disease, Dystonia and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders.
Bassam, an MD/PhD student in the laboratory of Andrea Kühn is also affiliated with the netstim lab via multiple projects. Bassam is interested in the utility of connectomics to predict deep brain stimulation outcome in movement disorders. By those means, he focuses on optimizing deep brain stimulation therapy.
