Neuroimaging in Freiburg



Neuroimaging provides visual insights into the functioning of the nervous system. For this purpose, a variety of techniques are applied to create images of the structure or activity of the brain. For this purpose, researchers make use of technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging or computerized tomography.

The two broad categories of neuroimaging are structural imaging and functional imaging: Structural imaging considers how the nervous system is structured. And also finds application in the diagnostics of intracranial diseases such as tumors or diseases. Functional imaging, on the other hand, is used for diagnosis of metabolic diseases such as Alzheimer's disease or epilepsy. (Labs performing functional imaging in animal models using fluorescent calcium or voltage indicators are listed under the 'Neurophysiology & Neuroanatomy' category.)
