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.
Simón joined us to do his PhD and has a computer science background. He is part of the core development team of Lead-DBS. In his PhD, he is exploring methods to refine registration tools and to use these methods to build more predictive models for DBS.
Ana is carrying out her Master’s thesis in the lab and is enrolled with the Medical Neuroscience program of Charité. She is investigating deep brain stimulation for treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
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.
Jan is a physician interested in the translational principles of Deep Brain Stimulation. His research is focussing on the local and network effects of DBS in patients with Parkinsons Disease and aims at moving Neuroimaging from bench to bedside to optimize therapeutic strategies in the field. He is enrolled in the MD/PhD program of the Einstein Center for Neurosciences and affiliated with the Lab of Andrea Kühn.
