Research Groups

ERC-funded Research Group

With the Consolidator Grant of the European Research Council (ERC), the European Union supports promising scientists at the beginning of an independent career. In addition to the ERC Consolidator Grant, the research group "Adaptive Memory and Decision Making" is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

The group investigates how the brain dynamically reshapes information in working memory to suit current demands, and how the underlying neural processes develop across the lifespan.   more

Max Planck Research Groups

Max Planck Research Groups (MPRG) use the facilities and resources of a Max Planck Institute, but have their own staff and equipment, which enable them to pursue a research project independently and thus lay the foundation for a successful career. They are initially limited to five years, but can be extended.

MPRG Biosocial | Biology, Social Disparities, and Development
Human development unfolds in transactions between biology, such as genetics, and social environments. The Max Planck Research Group Biosocial examines how social disparities affect child and adolescent development to shape differential outcomes of education, health, and well-being across the lifespan. more

MPRG MR Physics
The Max Planck Research Group “MR Physics” at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development is working on the implementation of reproducible and robust MR physics methods, quantitative MRI, and the validating and usage of in-vivo histology using MRI (hMRI).  more
