 Chemical Synapses (AG Gundelfinger)

 Synaptogenetics of the human brain

Aim of this newly designed project is to correlate polymorphisms in genes encoding human synaptic proteins with differences in brain activity patterns and performance in problem solutions. The project performed in close collaboration with the Department of Neurology of the Otto von Guericke University and is organized by Bjoern Schott (OvGU) and Constanze Seidenbecher.

Genetic Imaging

Fig.: A common polymorphism in the 3' region of a human neurotransmitter receptor gene affects the hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex of healthy subjects during deep and shallow memory encoding.
