Lifespan Neural Dynamics Group

This Emmy Noether Group is part of the Berlin site of the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research and is affiliated with the Center for Lifespan Psychology.

Interests within the Lifespan Neural Dynamics Group (LNDG) center on the examination of EEG/fMRI brain signal variability and dynamics in relation to lifespan development, cognition, neurochemistry, network dynamics, and brain structure.

Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research
The Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research was launched in April 2014. It is based on an initiative by scientists from the Max Planck Society and University College London (UCL) targeting the development and application of computational methods that reorganize and improve our understanding of mental illness and behavioral aging. more
