Project title: Advanced fMRI-based analysis of human sensory cortex

Project leader: Michael HoffmannMichael Hanke


NeuroNetwork 9

This project aims at the development and validation of new experimental and neuro-computational approaches for the investigation of the neuronal processing of sensory input to the human visual cortex. Novel approaches to decode cortical processing with functional magnetic resonance tomography (fMRI) are developed and applied to the analysis of the visual cortex. On the one hand spatial high-resolution fMRI approaches are established, validated, and optimized. On the other hand multivatiate data-analysis approaches are adapted, optimized and applied to the analysis of fMRI data sets. These methodological developments open up a wide range of applications, not only to deepen our understanding of the healthy visual system, but also to investigate pathphysiology and plasticity of the visual system for the optimization of future therapeutic strategies.
